Steady Hand Game

Is your hand quicker than your eye? Hand-eye coordination is part of almost every activity you undertake—this game can help develop it.

Materials You Will Need:

  • Energizer® Power Pack
  • Masking tape
  • Bulb holder or alternate insulated bulb holder
  • 2 pieces of bare copper wire—30" and 10" long
  • 3 pieces of number 22 insulated copper wire 10" long with approximately 1" of insulation stripped off all ends
  • Lid from shoe box

Please Read Carefully!

All experiments use safe, low-voltage battery power. Household electrical current contains high voltage that could cause serious injury. DO NOT use household electrical current for any of these experiments. ALL experiments should be conducted under adult supervision.

  • Carefully follow wiring instructions for each experiment. Improper wiring can result in battery leakage and/or rupture.
  • DO NOT take a battery apart. Contact with internal battery material can cause injury.
  • DO NOT dispose in fire, recharge, put in backwards, or mix with used or other battery types. This may cause batteries to explode, leak and cause personal injury.
