Circuit Clowns Activity

Circuit Clowns Activity

14 Aug 2017

From the Centre for Science Education, and with support from Shell Education services, these materials help children to learn about electrical circuits in a fun and engaging manner.

A variety of electrical circuits are used to make a clown with a nose that lights up and a bow tie that spins. Children use a range of components that include wire, batteries, buzzers, lights and switches.

Teacher guidance gives information on the materials required, scientific context and an outline of the activity.
