The One With The Circuits!

This week we began our topic of ‘Electricity’. We were given a range of electrical components and several tasks to try and complete within a given time. The tasks were to:

  • Create a simple circuit to make a bulb light,
  • Create more complex circuits to make a bulb dimmer/brighter,
  • Add a range of other components into the circuit, such as motors and buzzers,
  • Make a switch to turn the bulb on/off,
  • Test a range of everyday items to work out which ones are conductors/insulators.

Some brilliant learning and discussions took place during the sessions.
