An electric challenge...

Form 7 have been using ammeters as they investigate electrical conductivity.

This week in Science, Form 7 have been revisiting electrical symbols and testing various components to see if they will conduct electricity.

To improve the accuracy of the experiment, Form 7 made use of our ammeters. These showed that, although there was not enough electricity to turn the light bulbs on, there was some flowing through the graphite pencils.

Our next challenge will be to work out how to pass enough electricity through the pencil to make the bulb light up.
