These student activities are designed to be self-paced activities that students can complete independently or in small groups. Alternatively they can also be used as a teacher demonstration.

In the activity about Energy Transformations, students control a water wheel to power four lights in a model house. Students control the amount the water valve is opened in order to control the amount of energy the water wheel generates to light up the house. In the activity, A Model for Electricity, students repeat the same activity as in Energy Transformations, but also collect the data on flow rate, current and voltage.
