A4 Combining batteries (teacher instructions)

Experimentation instructions for Experimento | 8+:
Background information on the content and practical information on conducting the "Combining batteries? experiment, which comprises two subexperiments.

The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, and further research assignments.

What happens if the battery in the electric circuit is too powerful? What dangers are there if the individual components are not compatible? How can you recognize which parts can be combined in an electric circuit even before you assemble them?

Notes:
· Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
· All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.

A1 Simple electric circuit (teacher instructions)

Experimentation instructions for Experimento | 8+:
Background information on the content and practical information on conducting the "Simple electric circuit? experiment, which comprises three subexperiments.

The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, further research assignments, the reference to technology, and the reference to values.

The experiment comprises three subexperiments:
· The lamp should light up
· Switching on and off
· Electro quiz

How must cables, batteries, switches, and other electrical components be joined together so that, for example, an incandescent lamp lights up or a buzzer makes a sound? The students will discover how they can correctly close and interrupt an electric circuit and draw diagrams of their circuits.

Notes:
· Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
· All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.

B6 Renewable energies (teacher instructions)

Experimentation instructions for Experimento | 8+:
Background information on the content and practical information on conducting the "Renewable energies? experiment, which comprises four subexperiments.

The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, and further research assignments.

The experiment comprises four subexperiments:
· Harnessing solar energy as heat (1)
· Harnessing solar energy as heat (2)
· Harnessing the energy of water
· Harnessing the energy of wind

The students are growing up in an era when global environmental problems, especially climate change, are frequently discussed. It is important that the students not only understand the problems, but also recognize possibilities for solving them (for example, renewable sources of energy). The following experiments provide an opportunity for the students to work with renewable energies (sun, water, and wind as energy sources).

Notes:
· Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
· All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
