STEM Electric Science Kit
Discover Electrons and Electricity
There’s a good chance you or someone in your family has a computer, cell phone, tablet or other electronic device. These devices use electrons to work. Sometimes electrons don’t move, but are built up in huge numbers — that’s static electricity. With this Electric Science kit, you’ll discover more about static electricity using your homemade Static Bottle. Electrons travel through conductors and are stopped by insulators. The Energy Stick identifies one from the other and can tells when a circuit is complete by determining if liquids are connected by electron bridges. There are a lot of challenges to take on and discoveries to make when electrons are involved.
An Unforgettable Learning Experience
Each STEM Science Kit includes everything you need to conduct all seven experiments, suggestions for take-it-further activities and challenges for up to four children. You’ll also receive a colorful activity guide, giving your young scientist step-by-step instructions for each lab, along with thoughtful questions and extra challenges.
What Does the Electric Science Kit Teach?
This kit presents the foundation kids need to get a better idea of just what electrons really are and how to control them, whether they’re stationary or moving. Everyday experiences with static charges like uncooperative hair, a blue spark from a doorknob and shocks between a sheet and a blanket will start to make more sense.
Electrons are negatively charged atom particles. All of the electrons in an atom create a negative charge to help balance the positive charge from protons. These electrons play an important role in every chemical bond. Electrons are especially important in the field of electronics, as their tiny particles can easily stream through circuits and wires, moving from negatively charged to positively charged areas. When this movement occurs, the current can flow successfully throughout the entire device.
