Electricity Workshop

Build circuits in the classroom to learn about electricity

This electricity workshop for schools covers curriculum-based topics such as voltage, current, resistance, power, insulation, conductivity, series, and parallel circuits. Moreover, students will gain an in-depth understanding of how batteries and generators work.


We can deliver sessions in parallel.
1 instructor can deliver the following in a full day:
Primary: 3 sessions x 1 hr 30 mins

Age Group

Y3 - Y13

Learn How Electricity Generators Work

Students will generate electricity using mini generators and learn about electromagnetism.


Build Circuits on Breadboards

Build series and parallel circuits on breadboards to understand the relationship between voltage and current.


Build a Touch Switch Circuit

Build a touch switch circuit and turn on an LED.


Typical Workshop Day*

Usually, we will reset the session and repeat it for more groups of children on the same day. On occasions, we will end the day with a street-dance performance.

* The activities may vary on the day depending on the length of the workshops and the age and ability of the students.
