This activity uses the PhET circuit builder to help illustrate current and potential difference in series and parallel circuits.

It is a basic introduction and does not consider variables such as resistance. However, it is a clear way of demonstrating the rules, if you have unreliable electrical equipment.

I love this - Glad I had a practise with the Circuit Builder before my lesson, as my batteries kept 'catching fire' - my fault, not the website or the resource.

This saved me a lot of time in getting started, after having the same idea to use PhET to help teach electricity. Thank you.
