In-School Assembly

Electricity

Sparks fly, hair stands on end, and students are shocked as we demonstrate the science and technology of electricity! They'll create a human circuit to demonstrate the movement of charges and discover how magnets help create electricity.

Program Options: Electricity is available as either a large group assembly or an in-depth residency.

ASSEMBLY MAX: 250 students

Grade Level: 
3, 4 and 5
Learning Goals: 
  • Materials may be composed of parts that are too small to see yet can produce visible effects such as movement, light, heat and sound.
  • Similar to magnets, electrically charged objects may either push or pull, exerting a force on other objects.
  • When electrical charges move in a continuous current through objects and materials, a complete circuit is created and observable results may occur.
  • Electricity can be generated using magnets and a magnet can be produced using an electric current.
  • Electrical engineers design technologies that impact the way people move, use light, generate heat, and create sound.
  • Scientists and engineers keep safety in mind as they design experiments and technologies.
