The pupils of fourth and fifth class investigated current electricity by constructing simple circuits as part of their Science lessons on Energy and Forces .
Following that they applied the knowledge gained and skills learned in making electrical circuits to construct a model of a lighthouse that shines a light.
The pupils worked in groups of 4 designing their own lighthouses with a working constructed light circuit.
They learned how to make a switch using two paper fasteners attached to cardboard and joined them with a paper-clip on top, so that the latter could swivel . They joined the wires from the circuit to each paper fastener at the back of the cardboard.
All the groups were very creative at devising ways of disguising the battery and connecting circuits to create a more realistic model of a lighthouse.The pupils demonstrated their scientific skills of problem solving,experimenting,designing and making with great enthusiasm with quite a few of them showing signs of being budding engineers of the future!
