Electrical circuits

An electrical circuit is a closed path of conductive materials, where electrons flow in a Current. Circuits are everywhere in our modern lives. They are in electronics and devices and in anything that uses electricity. Understanding circuits helps us to understand how the technology around us works.

Within this resource, students are learning to recognise what an electrical circuit is and identify different elements, e.g. conductors and insulators. Through experimentation they can explore electricity and circuits and describe essential components of an electrical circuit.
