In this last part of our Electricity Show, we learn more about the Fort Collins Trolley and how it actually uses the principles of electricity, circuits, conductors and insulators to run!
In this edited segment, we take a look at the history of the Fort Collins Trolley Cars.
Claire and Madeline put everything they’ve learned together to figure out how we can use electricity to get a car to move. Charges flow from high potential to low potential through conductors.
This week, our scientists use a pencil to literally draw an electrical circuit!
Brian, Claire and Madeline try their hand and making and breaking circuits!
Brian meets Claire and Madeline, a couple of Junior Broadcasters from Tavelli Elementary School in Fort Collins. Together they begin to explore electricity.
Sunlight is a form of radiant energy, which is very important to us. Brian and the crew use another form of radiant infrared to cook a pizza!
Katie shows us how to make our magnets levitate.
Light has energy, and both plants and people can capture this energy to use!
Brian, Hailey and Finn play around with different colored lasers and explore which color photons carry the most energy.
