All you need to teach electrical circuits at KS1 and KS2, at a great price! The Rechargeable Electricity Kit contains 6 components bases and 4 Rechargeable Powerpods.
The components bases are manufactured from a transparent resin, so that children can clearly see all the connections and wiring in their circuits.
Stored in a handy carry case, the components include:
2 x MES bulb holders and bulbs
1 x buzzer
1 x push switch
1 x LED
1 x motor
5 black and 5 red jack leads.
With built in safety features, the 4 easy-to-use rechargeable Powerpods will allow children to continuously create and develop new electrical circuits without the need for batteries.
Completely safe for use in schools, the Powerpods will automatically limit the output current to a safe value, in the event of a circuit being shortened. The Pods, when fully charged, have an output of 1.5V, will last four hours and the LED display will always indicate the charge remaining.
The simple, two hour recharge is achieved using the docking station.
Year 4 - Electricity
• Construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers • identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery • recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit
Year 6 - Electricity
• associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit • compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches
