Time to get Squishy with Electricity!

In P1, we started using squishy circuits. Mr.Mutch made some conductor playdough because it had to be kneaded when it was hot but we worked as a team to make some insulator playdough in school.

A conductor allows electricity to pass through.

An insulator stops electricity from passing through.

We learned about the flow of electricity, we had to make sure that the electrons could return home to the battery and also go through the L.E.D we wanted to light up.

We used different components and explored how they worked, including a fan, switch and a buzzer.

We were then tasked to be creative and make a squishy creature that could light up.  We made an octopus, snowmen and a dinosaur.

We had great fun.
