Learning Circuits - Learn about electricity for free

Learning Circuits is a free web resource to learn about the basics of electricity and circuits. Designed for children ages 8-10 it can be used for homework, to support a lesson or a tutorial. Based on the UK National Curriculum it is structured in eight sections: 

  • Electricity basics
  • Simple circuits
  • Symbols and components
  • Switches
  • Changing circuits
  • Insulators and conductors

Each section breaks down the topic into simple screens of content and plenty of interactive exercises. There is a quiz to test your knowledge and a menu to navigate to any part of the material, as needed. 

 

It has been (experimentally) translated to French and Spanish.
