Students use electrical devices every day. An essential safety component of any electrical device is the fuse. By creating a short in a circuit that includes a balloon as the fuse, you can dramatically demonstrate what happens when you “blow a fuse!” Demonstration provides both audio and visual clues to help students understand how fuses work and shows why fuses are important safeguards against electrical fires.
Kit includes teacher notes with helpful teaching tips, reproducible student worksheets, and enough materials to perform the demonstration as written seven times.
