The media package includes the teacher instructions for the experiment „A2 Conductors and insulators“. In addition, it includes further media and a link list related to the overall topic of the experiment. Die Materialien sind auch in deutscher Sprache im Lernobjekt "Experimento | 8+: A2 Leiter und Isolatoren" verfügbar (siehe "Auswahl verwandter Medien").
Inhalt - A2 Conductors and insulators (teacher instructions) The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, further research assignments, the reference to technology, and the reference to values. The experiment comprises two subexperiments: • What are conductors and insulators? • Hot wire The students will set off as detectives on a search for conductive materials using their homemade continuity testers. What objects or materials make the test lamp light up? They will subsequently build a hot wire game and determine who has the best dexterity. In the process, they will learn that insulators play a key role in the design of electronic devices.
