Squishy Circuits http://courseweb.stthomas.edu/apthomas/SquishyCircuits/ Squishy Circuits Project Page
Squishy circuits are a project from the Thomas Lab at the University of St. Thomas.
The goal of the project is to design tools and activities which allow kids of all ages to create circuits and explore electronics using play dough.
Making Conductive Dough
Simple Electricity Experiments http://www.garyfallidou.org Deals with electric circuits, electricity, electricity production and electricity transmission.
Simple Electricity experiments: that deals with electric circuits, electricity, the basic principles of electricity production and electricity transmission.
Available in English, and Greek languages. Some parts are also available in Bulgarian and German.
Maglev Trains (online video) http://thefutureschannel.com/ Maglev Trains (online video)
Gliding on a wave of electromagnetic force, a maglev train could travel at 300 miles per hour or faster.
Designer-engineers describe the mechanics and future benefits of such superconductor trains.
GCSE Electricity http://www.gcse.com/electricity.htm Tutorials on a wide range of topics from current through to electromagnetism. Aimed at 14-16 year age range taking the UK-based GCSE examination, but suitable for all!

Electricity : 4 2 Explore http://www.42explore.com/electric.htm This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
Crocodile Clips Elementary : Electricity http://www.crocodile-clips.com/ Software to download .... allowing you to build circuits on your screen Crocodile Clips Elementary comes with a set of worksheets introducing electric current and circuits, and you can also use the pictorial components to build your own circuits, adding text and images as you go. All of the circuits you design simulate just like in real life, letting you experiment with electricity in a safe and enjoyable way. This company is recommended if you are looking for computer software to help with Physics and Chemistry.
