Electricity & circuits

5th May 2023

We have been learning about electricity and circuits this week and even got to make our own. We managed to light some bulbs (not pictured), sound some buzzers and turn some fans. We learned that the negative and the positive ends of the pole needs to be connected and that the word circuit comes from circ- meaning round e.g circle, circus etc. We also learned about conductors (e.g copper inside the wires) and the insulators (plastic/rubber that surrounds the copper wires to keep us safe).
