Product Overview

Ages 8+ / Grades 3+
• Learn about insulators and conductors
• Watch your body conduct electricity!
• Discover how electrons flow through circuits
• Touch the probes to make a human circuit!

Test items to determine if they are insulators or conductors
Conductor: If a material or a device allows electrons to move through it freely, it’s a good conductor of electricity. Metals, like copper and steel, and some liquids, are good conductors.

Insulator: Some materials, like rubber, wood, or glass, do not allow electrons to move through them easily. These insulators can be used to allow safe handling of or protection for electrical circuits.

What does it teach?
By adding the probes to the ends of Energy Stick®, you have made what electricians call a conductivity tester or a device that determines if something conducts electricity. The Energy Stick is a great toy to explore the science of electricity and circuits. The Energy Stick’s sensing circuit is so sensitive that it can detect even a very small amount of electricity that travels across your skin! It’s completely safe, and it’s a totally cool way to learn about conductors of electricity.

Try it with friends! Invite everyone to join in the fun by holding hands and forming a large circle to test their conductivity.

Comes with an activity guide!
Teaches young scientists about open and closed circuits as well as conductors and insulators.

Explore different conductors of electricity! Grab a partner and test different materials to see what conducts electricity. Try a spoon, a bowl of water, or even a slice of pizza. The sensing circuit is so sensitive that it can detect even a very small amount of electricity that travels across skin.
