Young scientists inductively derive Ohm's Law of voltage, resistance, and current by creating series and parallel circuits with 9-volt batteries and light bulbs. A week's worth of experiments, observation, and hands-on activities are best used by teachers with science expertise as procedures are loosely described. However, the introduction articulates the author's inspiring philosophical and pedagogical foundation: one every educator should read and to which we should all aspire.
