Windermere - Investigating batteries

Lesson: Science

Class: Miss L Pool - Windermere Year: 2023 - 2024

This week in science Windermere were exploring batteries and voltage. We first looked at the type of battery before looking at the voltage of each one. We then compared them to one another to see if we could se any patterns. Some of the smallest batteries had the same voltage as the largest batteries. As well as this, we discovered that the batteries were made out of different materials too. To finish, we used an online circuit simulator to see how the number of batteries and components changed the circuit.
