Grades:
Duration: 75-90-minute workshop
Cost: From $8.80 per student
Program Outline:

Big Bang Education’s Electrical Circuits and Renewable Energy program has been designed to help teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understanding in Physical Sciences for Year 6:

Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097)

Year 6 students will participate in a hands-on workshop all about electricity. This workshop is a self-guided investigation of what makes an electrical circuit work (or not work) and how to create different types of circuits for different purposes, incorporating the use of components such as switches and light bulbs. Students will also learn about some of the different ways of generating electricity, with a focus on renewable energy sources.

Requirements:
  • A large indoor space – a spare classroom or large multi-purpose area is ideal!
  • One large trestle table or equivalent
  • Access to a power point
Program Includes:
  • 75-90-minute hands-on workshop for each individual class (maximum of 30 students per session)

  • Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097)
  • Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE100)
  • Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe, measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS104)
  • Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS221)
