Circuit Building

Circuit Building Videos

Here is just one video of the circuit design project from this UOI in which students learned how energy flows and then were able to create their own design that will still allow for them to complete a circuit. Student demonstrate their understanding of how energy moves, what materials are conductors, and what kind of circuits there are.
