Year 8 Science: Simple Circuits

making a torch2

This week we are starting a unit of work on Electricity – you will learn about current and voltage, series and parallel circuits and create your own torch using some readily-available items (cardboard tube, aluminium foil, small light globe, copper wires, cardboard, masking tape and paperclips). Your torch will be asessed for it’s ability to direct a beam of light, turn on and off and be easily operated with one hand.
