Basic Circuits

 

This lab is a hands-on experiment lab to help you learn electronics. You will make many electronic circuits and learn how they work.

The Atom

As you may remember from your science lessons, all matter is made of atoms. Atoms have electrons in orbits around the nucleus. See diagram at left.

When electrons move from the outer ring of one atom to the outer ring of another atom, this is called electron flow. Wire has lots of atoms with electrons that can move from atom to atom.
