Making the Connection

Fourth grade students at Roosevelt School in Rahway are learning about Energy and Circuits in their Science class. Students are introduced to a switch and a motor and make a circuit that they can turn on and off before assembling a conductor detector which they use to test various items to see if they are conductors or insulators.
