Today in class the students were novice electrical engineers, and showed off their skills in circuit-building! After discussing the three essential parts of a circuit, they worked in groups to assemble a simple circuit of their own. They also added a switch, just for fun. Students also used their circuits to test whether materials were conductors or insulators. Ask your student which types of materials were conductors, and why we often use insulators to protect us from a conductive material.
We’re all looking forward to building some more complicated circuits together in two weeks!
