Visual results of light bulbs lit by a direct current versus light bulbs lit by an alternating current. A direct current gives a continuous light while a bulb lit with an alternating current is actually flashing on and off 120 times per second, not 60 seconds as stated in the video.
Homemade science is a collection of classroom tested ideas, suggestions, projects, and experiments that I have used in teaching physical science for the Annville-Cleona school district in central Pennsylvania. I am currently in my 40th year of teaching. My intention is to share these ideas with other teachers or anyone who has an interest in science. I have found that designing and building my own equipment has taught me more than any course that I have ever taken. I hope that you consider trying this for yourself.. I also share and show some of these ideas at workshops, science conferences, or inservice presentations.
