More Experiments with Electricity...Switches and Short Circuits

Remember last week we made simple circuits?
If you add a place where a wire can swing to open and close the circuit... and you have a switch...


which works on the same principle as the light and other switches throughout your house.


Another interesting thing to look at is how electricity always seeks the shortest route to take...
and sometimes it takes it when we don't want it to.
That is when you will most often hear the term "short circuit."
