Toggle Switch

Designed for easy panel mounting, this toggle switch enhances simple circuit projects.


  • This toggle switch is suitable for both panel mounting and unmounted use in basic circuits, enhancing learning experiences in science and design technology. It simplifies the understanding of electrical systems, such as series circuits, by providing a hands-on approach to assembly and functionality.

  • Integral to the curriculum for Design and Technology at Key Stage 2 and Science in Years 4 and 6, the switch enables students to build simple series circuits and comprehend the function of switches, bulbs, and buzzers. This hands-on experience is essential for mastering electrical concepts practically.

  • Furthermore, the switch supports learning outcomes by allowing students to compare different components' functions within circuits, emphasising the role of switches in circuit control. It aligns with educational goals on technical knowledge and practical skills, fostering investigative learning.

Supports the National Curriculum

Design & Technology, Key Stage 2, Technical Knowledge

Understand and use electrical systems in their products (for example, series circuits incorporating switches, bulbs, buzzers and motors).

Science, Year 4, Electricity

Construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers.

Science, Year 4, Electricity

Recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit.
