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 TIME: 50 minutes GRADE: Grade 4
$325 first assembly
$225 subsequent assemblies Travel fees may apply.

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.
SUPPORTS MINNESOTA STATE STANDARDS:
The Nature of Science and Engineering
Describe a situation in which one invention led to other inventions.
Describe how magnets can repel or attract each other and how they attract certain metal objects.
Demonstrate how an electric current can produce a magnetic force.
