Circuits and the Flow of Electricity Lesson Plan
I think I lost an electron. Are you sure? Yes, I'm positive! Starting with a hands-on demonstration and problem solving activity, young scientists define vocabulary related to circuitry and currents. Then they build their own circuits...

Get Connected with Ohm's Law
Ideal for your electricity unit, especially with middle schoolers, this lesson gets engineers using multimeters in electrical circuits to explore the relationships among voltage, current, and resistance. Older learners may even plot data...

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...

All About Linear Programming
Class members connect engineering with an understanding of linear programming using a technical resource. Scholars learn about linear programming (linear optimization) and how it applies to engineering design in the first of two modules....
