Electricity powers everything from a single light bulb to an entire city, but how does electricity get from the power plant to your home? Explore how electricity flows by building simple circuits that light up or make noise. Then combine them with other people’s creations to make more complex circuits and see how they interact. Each component will be a building of your own making, and when combined they will form a city as unique as Philadelphia. When you’re finished take your creations home and keep exploring. Designed for kids 5-10 and their adults.
