This page has supporting information to accompany the CoCoElectro bag project that was funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry and provided all of the kit for children to carry out the activities described in the accompanying booklet which can be downloaded here (it’s free): CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE BOOKLET
The project provided equipment for children to explore materials science relevant to electricity and energy storage during the school summer holidays of 2023. The booklet, and activities, are aimed at 11-14 year olds but will be fine to use for slightly younger / older audiences maybe as part of a science club or as part of home-schooling
All of the equipment was supplied in the CoCoElectro Bags at events during the school summer holidays in 2023. A full list of the euqipment will be published here in due course…..
The following videos help guide you through the activities in the CoCoElectro Bag Booklet which can be found as a playlist on our YouTube channel:
