A simple, easy do it yourself (DIY) kit to understand the heating effect of current.
Electric current is one singular wonder of science that has changed human life forever. Current creates light, it creates magnetism and it creates heat. All that’s needed is the right kind of conducting wire and the right battery.
This simple project for schools can be used in any junior science lab or a science activity workshop to demonstrate the heating effects of current. This is a DIY physics project for school kids, specially designed around the school curriculum. This physics project for class 6th and 7th can be used to explain not just the heating effect of the current but also basic electric circuit and the concept of resistance.
- One piece of Nichrome wire
- One battery
- Connecting wire
- One cello tape
- One card board base
You will also need scissors, screw driver and an adult to supervise and support the kid.
