STEM: Constructing Simple Circuits

4th, 5th and 6th class investigated electricity as part of their STEM work. Through investigation the children were enabled to investigate current electricity by constructing simple circuits. They had to design a circuit using different electrical components including battery, wires, bulb and bulb-holder.

They discovered that electricity can only flow around a complete circuit that has no gaps. Every complete circuit must have a power supply. The power supply could be the mains, or it could be a battery. They learned that for a circuit to be complete, there must be wires connected to both the positive and negative ends of the power supply.

Well done to 4th, 5th and 6th class!
