Grade 6. Students are given a scenario where a cyber attack has shut down the nation's electrical grid. To provide light during the blackout, students work in teams to create a flashlight. Using the engineering design process as a guide, students research concepts related to electricity, brainstorm flashlight designs, build, and test their own flashlight. Students explore concepts of atoms, electrons, conductors, insulators, power sources, chemical energy, electrical energy, electrochemical cells, anodes, cathodes, ions, anions, cations, voltaic pile, voltage, and circuitry. Flashlight housings are not included but can be made from cardboard chip cans, plastic containers, plastic drink bottles, plastic bats, plungers, flower pots, and other items that are not made out of metal and therefore could not become a conductor. Access to curricula materials can be found at http://www.nicerc.org.
Materials in this kit include: foam cups, foam bowls, 9V batteries, masking tape, aluminum foil, and salt.

Please note: NO additional discounts apply.
