Year 6 – Science

31st January 22

Year 6 have been learning how Alessandro Volta first discovered how to generate a flow of electricity (the battery), and revolutionised our lives. The boys have been making their own batteries, following the Voltaic Pile method, with 0.6 Volts achieved so far. The next step is to devise ways of increasing the voltage sufficiently to light a 1.5 Volt bulb.
