Version 14

1.Static Electricity Intro

-powerpoint of basics

-demos: pvc pipe and paper, paperclips

2. Squishy Circuits

-powerpoint of circuit basics

3. Valentine's Day Electrical Greeting Cards

-introduce lightbulbs and switches

4. Build A Flashlight

-application of circuits in everyday life

-making the circuits more compact for a device

We tried to make the circuit building easier by using christmas lights and cutting them up and exposing the wires like this http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/light-circuit-sick-science.  We went through a lot of bulbs because they would burn out often using 9V batteries so it was useful to have a whole string of lights available and we could just strip more as we needed.

We also bought 6 of these switches https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9414 later in the semester which would have been good for this project so they are available in the supply closet now, check for them with the light bulbs.

5. Parallel circuits

-discovery experiment, how to keep one light on while turning one off
