Exploring Electricity

What is electricity? How do circuits work? These are some of the questions that will be explored in this electrifying, hands-on Learning Lab. Students will get to create circuits using our Discovery Bags of loads, switches, and a power source. Through interaction with our hands-on activity stations, students will learn what electricity is, where it comes from, and how we control it.
