Rick Crosslin shares safe experiments with electricity

Scientist Rock Crosslin joined us for some electric experiments! He taught us that electricity is a type of electromagnetic energy.

A simple circuit includes a battery or power source, a path or wire, an appliance or light bulb, and a switch. There are three basic types of circuits: simple, series, and parallel. 

He showed us how to make each with materials around the house.
