What's the best way to understand electricity? Try some of these battery-powered science fair projects and experiments to learn first hand about the amazing properties of battery power.

Note to students, teachers, and parents —

The science fair projects and battery-powered experiments you’ll find here introduce you to the foundations of portable power. You’ll learn the basics of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics. Since batteries produce electricity through chemical reactions, you’ll use an Energizer® Power Pack, a set of Energizer® batteries connected in series, in all of the experiments (Lessen B below). Have fun!

Before you begin a project please complete these lessons.

Lesson A - The Principles of Electricity
Understanding Ohms & Volts — the basis for all your electric devices

Lesson B - Build a Power Pack
Learn how you’ll provide the power for all the experiments here

Lesson C - Make a Simple Circuit
Learn how you can control electricity — build a switch to control its flow
