Lighting It Up

Create your own electrical quiz
< Back to Workshops

This exciting and practical electrical workshop allows pupils to connect and investigate simple circuits incorporating a range of electrical components and then draw diagrams using symbols.

The children use a range of tools and equipment necessary for circuit building and enhance their making skills in producing an electrical quiz game.

The workshop is best done in a large classroom.

The aim of this workshop is to give your children the opportunity to extend their knowledge and understanding of electrical circuits and the various components used. We show an example of the game to be made and demonstrate the safe use of the tools needed for this activity. Children are encouraged to measure accurately and use tools correctly. Each child will succeed in making their own electrical quiz game, which they keep.

After the workshop takes place the teacher can extend learning by having the pupils add their own questions and answers making it their very own quiz game.
