Event Overview: An event where students experience electricity and magnetism in a captivating science show.
See 100,000 volts discharged in a flash! How is electricity generated anyway? What is the difference between series & parallel circuits? What does the Earth's magnetic field look like? What technologies are being developed for the future?
These concepts and much more are explored.Your class will have a chance to run experiments during the event using materials supplied by your school. Fizzics Education will provide information on materials required prior to the event date. Should you require a different day please contact us and we'll arrange a suitable time for you!
Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:
- Electrical circuits provide a means of transferring and transforming electricity (ACSSU097)
- Energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity (ACSSU219)
- Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance. (ACSSU076)
NSW Science Syllabus Content
- describes how scientific understanding about the sources, transfer and transformation of electricity is related to - making decisions about its use (ST3-6PW).
- describes everyday interactions between objects that result from contact and non-contact forces (ST2-7PW).
Additional Booking Instructions: On booking we will send out a .pdf file which will contain;- a confirmation of the time/date of the video conference.- a list of experiment materials we expect that you will have available during the conference. These inexpensive science materials are readily accessible in any supermarket and make the video conference more interactive and engaging for students.
