Electricity , whether it was produced using renewable or nonrenewable sources, drives our computers, lights, refrigerators, washing machines, and more! Create a miniature "Galaxy of Lights" display to take home.

6th-8th: Students will wire a series of circuits with varying numbers of batteries, wires, bulbs, and switches, and see how different circuits affect the flow of electric current.
