This week in our Science topic on Electricity, the children in Class 10 experimented with a variety of equipment with the aim of creating a working switch. In pairs, they had a paper clip, cardboard and split pins. The children had about 20 minutes to explore the resources given, trialling whether they had created a working switch. After some exploration, the children were shown how to create a working switch. When the paper clip touches the split pin it closes the circuit meaning the light bulb switches on. When the paper clip does not touch the split pin, the circuit is open meaning the light bulb does not light up. They were able to test this out themselves.
