This is a challenging, engaging and enjoyable interactive game which can be played by individuals or teams. There are 35 differentiated questions on the basics of current electricity including:
- understanding the terms current, voltage and resistance;
- conductors and insulators;
- circuit symbol;
- circuits diagrams;
- units and measurement of current and voltage;
- current and voltage in series and parallel circuits;
- lamps in series and parallel.
Included in this Pack.

Prior Knowledge Required
- The symbols for switch, resistor, battery, voltmeter, ammeter, motor, buzzer
and able to recognise series and parallel circuits.
- Metals and non-metals as conductors and insulators.
- Current is a flow of electrons and metal ions cause resistance.
- Batteries contain chemicals and provide the push or voltage to current.
- Voltage is the difference in energy level between two points in a circuit.
- Comparative resistance of long/short, thin/thick wires.
- Know that insulators have high resistances and the resistance of all conductors
is comparatively lower.
- Comparative brightness of identical lamps in series and parallel and the effect
of removing a lamp.
- Ammeters are placed in series and voltmeters in parallel.
- Current is measured in amps and voltage in volts.
- Current in series and parallel circuits.
- Voltage in series and parallel circuits.
