We are beginning to learn about Makey Makey our goals are to be able to connect a Makey Makey to to control a computer. YOU NEED A  connected CIRCUIT FOR A MAKEY MAKEY TO WORK.

  1.  First lets try to understand what a circuit is. Today let us  Watch the Brainpop Movie on Circuits to get an idea of how an electric circuit works.  Here is some of the  vocabulary you need

  2. Electronnegatively charged subatomic particle


  3. Current  a steady flow of electricity

  4. Power Source  is the thing that provides a steady flow of electrons

  5. LOAD THIS IS THE DEVICE THAT WILL USE THE ELECTRICITY THAT is made by the power source.

  6. Conductor a material that it is easy for electrons to travel on like metal

  7. insulator a substance like rubber that does not conduct electricity.

  8. Switch disconnects the  circuit so that electrons cannot flow. This happens when you turn off a light you are breaking the circuit.

______________________________________________________________________

  1. Static electricity/ Naturally occurring electricity sudden naturally occurring electricity like lightning  cannot be harnessed easily because All the energy is released at once.
