Electricity: Static And Current
Students explain that electrons are the things that make electricity work, name and define the two basic kinds of electricity as static and current, compare conductors and insulators and construct a battery.

The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this lesson on the path of least resistance, or rather, on conductors and insulators. Using two types of modeling dough, one that conducts and one that insulates, young electrical engineers construct...
