What is electricity??????
Electricity is an energy that flows through things like computers, helping them work. Electricity is in lots of things here are some examples:
- digital clocks
- air conditioning
- fish tank filters
- anything that plugs into a power point
In design we have bean using Makey Makeys. A makey makey is a board you clip wires on to the board and clip the other end onto some thing like a banana, when you touch the banana it should work like a computer key.
If it does not work it is probably because of one of these reasons:
- you are not holding the earth wire
- the earth wire is not clipped to the makey makey board
- the wire is not attached to the banana
- the other end of the wire that is attad to the banana is not attached to the mackey makey board
- the matirial you chose is not one of the working material. Here are some working materials:
- play dough
Here are some materials that do not work:
- card board
- china [plates and bowls not the contry!!!!!]
