This open hands-on model building effectively combines theoretical and practical STEM skills. Analogies are ideal in supporting and complementing this practical model making and reinforcing the principles taught.
A circuit or wiring diagram is a visual display of an electrical circuit.
DC powers battery operated vehicles and other machines and electronics. Converters can change AC to DC and vice versa. High-voltage direct current transmission uses big converters. That’s it an electrical curcit.
Electronic circuits usually use direct current sources. The load of an electronic circuit may be as simple as a few resistors, capacitors, and a lamp, all connected together to create the flash in a camera. Or an electronic circuit can be complicated, connecting thousands of resistors, capacitors, and transistors. It may be an integrated circuit such as the microprocessor in a computer.
