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 STEM learning toy made for any home or classroom. Discover for yourself why the Steve Spangler Energy Stick is a critically acclaimed STEM learning toy that combines scientific exploration with unforgettable fun.

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.

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.

Energy Stick

Introduce Circuits With the Activity Guide

Now you can introduce electricity with ease – the included Energy Stick activity guide teaches young scientists about complex subjects such as open and closed circuits, as well as conductors and insulators.

Energy Stick

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 future careers as scientists. If your Energy Stick experiment sparks even a little more interest in STEM, then it was surely worth the effort.

Energy Stick Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Energy Stick?

An Energy Stick is a STEM learning toy that combines fun and excitement with a scientific lesson about the nature of electricity and conductors. It’s a great educational gift for budding young minds or a fun tool for classroom science lessons. 

How Do You Use an Energy Stick?

Energy Sticks can be used in solo or group experiments. Simply touch both ends of an energy stick to complete a circuit, and the energy stick should light up and emit sounds. For group activities, form a circle where everyone holds hands. Then, pick two people to hold either end of the Energy Stick. When the circuit is complete, the Energy Stick should activate. 

Are Energy Sticks Safe?

Yes, Energy Sticks are a completely safe way for children to learn about the nature of electricity. They emit very little power, and they are at a low enough current that is considered safe.

What Does the Energy Stick Teach?

The Energy Stick and its included activity guide teach students and children about the nature of electricity, open and closed circuits, conductors, and insulators in a way that’s engaging and interactive.

    Amazes Young and Old

    Suzanne Schlechte

    I bought this with the intention of providing new experiences and amazing my daycare children, however this little device amazes both young and old! My grandchildren love showing people how it works and so do I. So glad I bought it!

    Awesome product for teaching simple circuits!

    Vance J Nannini

    My students had a riot with these. We not only demonstrated simple circuits but also conductors and insulators – the students had to predict what would happen if (for example) two people held a copper wire, a piece of rope, etc. between them. We got the whole class to join hands and demonstrated open and closed circuits. Great product.

    Fun for all ages


    My three kids, ages 11, 8 and 3 were fascinated by this toy. They worked together to see what would conduct and make it light up. They even noted that some things worked better than others, louder or softer, more light. Great way to explore circuits.

    Great for adults, too!

    Candace Fitzpatrick

    We used these at a conference with adults to talk about how important it is to connect as a community, then we handed out one to each of them. You would have thought they had won the lottery! Facilitators take note – not just an educational toy for kids!

    Dr Judson

    Bought it for my second grader. She loves it and showed it to her science teacher who loved it so much that we bought one for her to use in class. The whole class joined in a ring and they tested almost everything in the room for conductivity. A teacher in the middle school fell in love with it so we bought her one. Teachers can’t afford them on their salaries so we are buying more for them. It got a lot of use and the battery hasn’t needed changing. But instructions on how to change it would be nice. But it is really fantastic.

    Excellent product with exciting implications!


    Students, teachers and parents love these. I have used them with high school students who joined hands to complete the circuit; elementary students who were so excited to see this electricity application; and also with parents at Family Science Nights. Extend by adding an apple or a banana, and have everyone predict what will happen. I also took an energy stick with me when I attended a meeting to receive a grant. When I reached out to accept the check, I was holding the stick. I explained that part of the grant would provide materials such as the energy stick. Everyone was amused and intrigued.You can’t go wrong with energy sticks.

    Great class bonding tool.

    I used this the first day to make the point of everyone must be present every day or there is no spark in class. It serves for building relationships of everyone matters.

    Batteries can be replaced

    Mark D Clauder

    The company tells you the batteries cannot be replaced, but I have replaced mine several times with good success. It it’s dead, what’s the harm in trying? If you break it, you haven’t lost anything.
