The Steve Spangler Science Energy Stick®
With our exclusive Energy Stick, you can turn your body into a human conductor of electricity. Our award-winning, hands-on approach to the exploration of electricity and circuits is both a science experiment and a must-have toy made for any home or classroom.
Explore Electricity With the Energy Stick
In most developed countries, electricity is found everywhere and is a vital part of our everyday life. For that reason, it’s essential for kids not to overlook its importance. You want to show kids that learning should be fun and make science stick with them. Most importantly, children need to learn how to use electricity safely. With the Steve Spangler Science Energy Stick, children will learn about electricity as the science comes to life in the palms of their hands.
How Do Energy Sticks Work?
This highly popular STEM circuit kit comes complete with an activity guide that teaches young scientists about open and closed circuits, conductors and insulators. Children will also begin to learn the fundamentals about how electrodes work. With electrodes on each end of this 7.5-inch conductor stick, children simply place one hand on each end to complete the circuit, emitting sound and fun flashing lights. Any kid will get a kick out of the Energy Stick, which makes it a great toy to learn about science, but there’s more to explore with this energy rod toy. The Energy Stick’s high-quality sensing circuit is so sensitive that it can detect even the smallest amounts of electricity that travel across the skin. The Energy Stick is not only a cool way to introduce kids to conductors, but it’s completely safe.
Energy Sticks Make Great Large-Group Activities
Gather up an entire class, a youth group or a party to hold hands in a circle. Have one participant hold one electrode and the person next to him or her hold the other electrode. If everyone in the circle is holding hands, the Energy Stick will do its magic. As soon as someone breaks the circle, it will stop. Our Energy Stick science experiment comes with everything you need to create a memorable, hands-on experience that kids will remember for years.

Try the Energy Stick With Friends
Everyone will want to gather around for this. Invite your circle of friends or classmates to join in on the fun by holding hands and forming a large chain to truly test their conductivity.
Introduce Circuits With the Activity Guide
Now you can introduce electricity with ease – the included activity guide teaches young scientists about complex subjects such as open and closed circuits, as well as conductors and insulators.
Test Different Conductors With Energy Stick Experiments
Grab a partner and test different materials to see what conducts electricity the best. Try a spoon, a bowl of water or even a slice of pizza. Since the sensing circuit is highly sensitive, students can easily observe what happens and practice for their future career as a scientist. If your experiment sparks even a little more interest in STEM, then it was surely worth the effort.
