This ‘hair raising’ session explores electrical energy in static and circuit form.

Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Students gain a basic understanding of static and current electricity. Students get ‘hands-on’ with some serious static charge produced by a Van De Graaff generator. They explore how energy is related to the movement of electrons and are then challenged to create and document series and parallel electrical circuits using international circuit symbols and then apply this knowledge to create a game controller with the Makey Makey inventors kit.
