STEM Electricity: 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 explore our STEM electricity experiments, and 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 tell 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.

Unforgettable Electricity Kits for Students & Kids

Each Electric 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. Activities in the Electric Science Kit can be completed solo or as a group, making this the ideal electricity kit for students and kids learning at home.

What Does the Electric Science Kit Teach?

The Electric Science 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. This background information is just the introduction to what is explored in the Electric Science Kit. You can prepare for a thrilling, educational STEM electricity experience for your children, and YOU might even learn something, too!

A Future Career in Electronics

The concept behind an electrical circuit is presented in several fun ways that show how electrons move in a closed circuit and are stopped in an open circuit. The proof comes from a simple device called an Energy Stick that flashes and buzzes when a circuit is complete.

Make Some Science Fair Connections

To develop a science fair project, you need to identify and test variables. A variable is something you change that might alter the results of the experiment. A valid test keeps everything else the same except the single variable being tested.

7 Experiments Included:

Energy Stick – Human Conductors
In Search of Conductors
Make a Conductivity Tester
Build an Electron Bridge
A Hair-Raising Experience
Push or Pull
The Amazing Levitating Loop

Electricity Science Kit for Kids

Help children to discover the fun of science with this Electricity Science Kit, designed to encourage them to learn about electricity and energy in a way that’s both educational and interesting. Kids will be eager to explore the 7 experiments in the Electricity Science Kit, and with our additional suggested activities, they can take their hands-on education further. Young scientists will learn about static electricity, as well electrons, conductivity and electron bridges. This fun STEM electricity kit puts the control in the hands of your children or students, allowing them to investigate and learn at their own pace in a way that makes them eager to share what they’ve learned with others.

This Electricity Science Kit is also a fantastic addition to any classroom, as it includes group learning challenges for one to four children. Our STEM electricity kit can also be used for inspiration for your child’s next science fair project, giving them an opportunity to show off their knowledge and imagination in an exciting and inventive way. Our colorful activity guides are easy to understand and will keep children invested in what they’re learning. Help your children explore these fun STEM electricity activities or allow them discover the answers on their own – with many unique lessons and projects, there’s something for every child in our Electricity Science Kit.

What’s Included?

  • STEM Electric Science Kit*
  • Seven experiments
  • Suggested take-it-further activities
  • Activity guide

*STEM Electric Science Kit Includes:

  • Energy Stick Conductor
  • Two 19-inch latex balloons (when inflated)
  • Clear cylinder with cap – 8 inches high by 1.5 inches wide
  • Colored beads – 10 milliliters
  • Six clear PET Cups – 4 ounces
  • Aluminum foil sheet
  • Instruction cards

Recommended for children ages 8 and older with adult supervision.

Science Fair Connections

To develop a science fair project, you will need to identify and test variables. A variable is something you change that might alter the results of the science experiment. A valid test keeps everything else the same except the single variable being tested.

Here are some examples of variables you could test with the Electric Test Tubes activity at your next science fair:

  • A plain liquid other than water may be a better conductor and improve the reaction of the Energy Stick. Determine what it might be.
  • A material dissolved in the liquid, like salt, sugar or baking soda, might affect the reaction. Use the procedure to determine the material that best improves the results.
  • Use the procedure to determine the ideal amount of a dissolved material (its concentration) needed to improve the results.
  • It could be that the temperature of the liquid makes a difference in how the Energy Stick reacts to the test. Determine that ideal temperature.
  • Do all of these tests independently to positively identify the ultimate method to achieve a reaction from the Energy Stick using the Electric Test Tubes activity.

You can also come up with your own variable to test and go claim that first place prize.
