Discover how our houses are wired, allowing us to control various devices independently in different rooms. Through various hands-on electricity experiments, students will explore electrically conductive and insulating materials, and will learn the parts of an electrical circuit. In addition, they will discover the differences between series and parallel circuits. As they wire our miniature houses, students will observe as various electrical devices (i.e., a light bulb, fan, doorbell, etc.) transform electrical energy into another form of energy.
