CE-MIST Student Programs at the RPSEC
Circuit City: Using batteries, bulbs, wires, motors, and propellers, students will construct electrical circuits. They will transform chemical energy to electrical energy, as well as transform electrical energy to light, heat, sound, and motion.
6-5.2 Explain how energy can be transformed from one form
to another (including the two types of mechanical energy, potential and
kinetic, as well as chemical
and electrical energy) in accordance with the law of conservation of energy.
6-5.4 Illustrate energy transformations (including the production of light, sound, heat, and mechanical motion) in electrical circuits.
6-2.4 Create responses to informational texts
through a variety of methods (for example, drawings, written works, oral
and auditory presentations,
discussions, and media productions).
6-2.6 Interpret information from graphic features (for example, illustrations, graphs,
charts, maps, diagrams, and graphic organizers).
