Electrical and Computer Engineering
Now that students have a basic understanding of circuits, teams will create parallel and series circuits. They will understand the circuits behavior based on the type of wiring. Students will also explore the use of a physical switch in a circuit.
- Build a parallel and series circuit using a breadboard
- Understand and identify parallel and series circuits.
- Explain the benefits and drawbacks to each type of circuit.
- Identify where each type of circuit may be used.
|HS-PS3-5. Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
