Electricity

In this honour you will gain a basic understanding of the wonders of electricity - electrical repulsion and attraction, direct current, alternating current, batteries, electric motors and electrical safety devices.

You'll know the first things to do in the event of a person suffering electric shock.

You'll examine two simplified circuits; the lights of a car and the electric power in a house.  Have fun making things such as a simple cell battery and an electromagnet.

Contact with high voltage electricity (ie above 32 Volts) is beyond the scope of the honour.
