In stock and available to ship.

Electrical energy is a vital part of modern living. It powers a vast number of devices that we use daily, from lightbulbs, televisions, and computers to vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, and air conditioners. Although students may come to the unit with seemingly limited experience with electrical energy, they actually use it routinely—playing with battery-powered toys, watching television, listening to MP3s, and playing video games. Our increasing reliance on electrical energy and the need to generate more electrical power underscores the need for students to understand the nature of electricity. The term “electricity” is used to describe many phenomena associated with electrical energy and electrical circuits. As students participate in the inquiries in this unit, they begin to develop their own understanding of the meaning of electrical current, voltage, power, and electrical energy. They investigate how electrical energy is transferred in electrical circuits and how devices transform electrical energy into other forms of energy.

STC–Secondary™ is a 16-unit, inquiry-centered middle school science curriculum developed by the National Science Resources Center, an organization of the Smithsonian Institution. Each STC–Secondary™ unit provides opportunities for students to experience scientific phenomena firsthand. A comprehensive, research-based curriculum, STC–Secondary™ is aligned with the National Science Education Standards.

Investigating Circuit Design Student Guide and Source Book is hardbound and provides the student investigations, student goals and objectives, and reading selections for each lesson in the Investigating Circuit Design unit (item #976201 or #976201U5).
