Explore Electricity With the Energy Stick
In most developed countries, electricity is found everywhere and is a vital part of everyday life. For that reason, it’s essential for kids not to overlook its importance. With the Steve Spangler Science Energy Stick, children will learn about electricity as the science comes to life in the palms of their hands. Our Energy Stick toy is a great device for teaching kids about this vital component of everyday living, as well as how to use electricity safely.
How Do Energy Sticks Work?
Our highly popular Energy Stick toy 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 educational toy to learn about science.. 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 and makes for a fun STEM learning toy.
Energy Sticks Make Great 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 of the Steve Spangler Energy Stick 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. Discover all of the different ways that your students, youth group or party can form and break electrical circuits with the Energy Stick. Let kids’ imaginations run wild and troubleshoot different circuit shapes and patterns. Regardless of what they choose, when a circuit is formed, the Steve Spangler Energy Stick will come alive with sound and flashing lights. It’s a thrilling way to encourage them to explore both their scientific minds and creativity.
