This complete kit allows students to study the properties of electricity firsthand. Students build batteries from different combinations of metals, learn about current and voltage, and use ammeters and voltmeters to measure the properties of the circuits they build. Students also learn the relationship between electrical current, resistance, and voltage and explain their measurements in series and parallel circuits. Materials are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great start! If you are looking to start a base of equipment for your lab, this is good place to start. I got this kit and it worked well for my first year teaching physics. It comes with a nice little lab booklet with a few basic labs and worksheets you can use. The equipment is high quality. I just wish it came with more meters and battery holders and less electrodes (which I have yet to use!). You also have to buy things like resistors and capacitors but those are cheap at radioshack. More wires would be nice too.
