Lightning Lab is the second of two studies funded by the NSF DRK-12 mechanism (1020367). In this multi-day lesson students learn about Electric Fields starting from net charge in a single atom to sparks to how the Electric Field is quantified with Coulomb’s Law.
Seven interactive exercises and games are embedded in the lesson.
