Circuit Clowns Activity
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.
