The Shocking Truth About Electricity

from SOITA Learning Technologies

Program image

Electrons, current, and circuits oh my! Get ready to laugh and learn as we take an in-depth look at electricity. Participants will have the opportunity to complete several investigations including how electrical current travels, simple circuits, and even construct an electro-magnet. You will be “shocked” into disbelief at how amazing electricity can be!
