Featured in PASCO’s Elementary School Science Teacher Guide
Features 29 inquiry based labs designed for elementary students and coordinated with the standards for life, earth and physical sciences.
Conduct or Not?
Use a voltage sensor to test the conductivity of different materials.
To understand this content, students:
- Build an electrical circuit tester from materials provided.
- Use their circuit tester to test which materials are conductors and which are insulators.
- Use a voltage sensor to test the voltage drop across their circuit.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to safely measure voltage and current simultaneously without overloading the sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
