Build your own Christmas lights

Climate change and electricity? Investigate types of circuit with buzzers and lights to experiment and find out which is best for our planet.

Many of us love to decorate our homes with lights at Christmas but this can be a problem for our planet and poor Santa is beginning to worry. It may not be long before he has to move away from the North Pole or develop a new workshop and home underwater. We can help him! Join in with our science experiment at home or in school this Christmas - the magic of science is real-life fun!

Download our free activity sheet below to get creative.

Oh ho ho, and don't forget to share your experiment highlights with us @IETeducation! #SantaLovesSTEM
