Some Key Concepts About Elements and their Atoms

    • Atoms are made of extremely tiny particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
    • Protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom, making up the nucleus.
    • Electrons surround the nucleus.
    • Protons have a positive charge.
    • Electrons have a negative charge.
    • The charge on the proton and electron are exactly the same size but opposite.
    • Neutrons have no charge.
    • Since opposite charges attract, protons and electrons attract each other.

Fixing Electrical Problems

There are so many uses for electricity. But what happens when something isn’t working right? Maybe your computer speakers are not working or your refrigerator isn’t staying cold. What do people do? They often need to take their appliance in to be repaired or have a technician come to the house to repair the appliance. The technician has to figure out what is wrong and why the device is not working properly. This process is called troubleshooting. Let’s practice some troubleshooting skills to solve electrical problems.

What is Static Electricity?

A form of Static Electricity is lightning… check out the video below of some amazing lightning strikes.
