Electrical Engineer for a Day Lesson Plans for Ages 11 - 14

 Average 0 out of 5

Students learn about electrical components and circuits, and use Ohm's Law to design, build, and test a circuit, much like professional engineers do. Continue to the Resource link at the bottom of the page.  

Students learn three different types of electrical components, how to identify them and understand their capabilities. They will use this knowledge to design, build and test a simple circuit to light up an LED.
