Carolina® Introduction to Electricity Kit


Product: (in stock)


Grades 9–12. This 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. Includes instructions and free 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS.
