Physics: Circuits

This week we experimented with different kinds of circuits. The kids learned about the basic parts of a circuit: battery, load, and wires, and then they were challenged to build and diagram circuits that could turn on lights, motors, and annoying beeping machines. What's that saying...necessity is the mother of invention? Following their success with the annoying beeping machines, we introduced the concept of switches. Ah....sweet silence.
