The Energy Stick is the newest tool in experimenting with open and closed circuits. Completely safe to touch and handle, the Energy Stick features electrodes on each end of its 7.5″ long tube. When these electrodes are touched simultaneously, long-lasting LED lights inside the tube flash and the tube makes a noise. Release one or both of the electrodes and the flashing lights and noise stop. Do it over and over again… it works every time!
That’s awesome, but did you know that you can do the same thing with an entire circle of people? It’s true! Gather up an entire class, youth group, or party to hold hands in a circle. Have one participant hold one electrode and the person next to him or her hold the other electrode. If everyone in the circle is holding hands, the Energy Stick will do its magic. But as soon as someone breaks the circle it will stop. How many people can you get to complete the circuit?
