Circuit challenge

posted in: Year Four News | 0

As part of our Science topic of Electricity, we were set a challenge to create an electrical circuit to protect a special one million pound box! We had to include buzzers and set up our circuit correctly. We practised how to draw circuits scientifically and used our prior knowledge and understanding in the construction of our circuits.

Our Science project then developed into creating our own switches. We had to choose which materials to use and how to shape them in order to create an effective ‘pressure pad’ switch. We are progressing well in how to draw circuits scientifically, learning the symbols for the components we have used.
