Bulbs in Series and Parallel

Have you ever wondered what happens if you try to light up two lamps (light bulbs) with one battery? How do you connect them? How many different ways you may connect two lamps to one battery? Does the connection arrangement affect the amount of light in each lamp?

If you can modify the amount of electricity available to each lamp, you will be able to adjust the amount of light and you can safely use a strong battery to light up many low voltage lamp.

Material and instructions:
In this project you will make models of series and parallel circuits and use them to find answers to your questions. You can also take your model to the classroom and show other students how you can change the distribution of electricity by connecting components in series or in parallel. Materials may be found locally or purchased online.
