Teacher Stuff

Electricity is a tough subject for any age. Most of the science of electricity is too small to see with the naked eye so it is sometimes difficult to visualize what electricity is and how it behaves.

However, electric safety is a theme anyone can understand. While it would be great to inspire a generation of electrical engineers, we'd settle for inspiring a healthy respect for this force behind the outlets that we all take for granted.
