Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Create a range of circuits and see if you can master the ‘mouse trap challenge’.

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

Students are challenged to create and document electrical circuits using international circuit symbols and then apply this knowledge to a Design Challenge Task. They also get ‘hands on’ with some serious static charge produced by a Van De Graaff generator.
