Students get a hands-on activity with electricity

Students in Mr. Woodburn’s Ag Construction class get a chance to demonstrate what they have been learning in class about electricity. Students were asked to correctly wire a light bulb and receptacle to a switch. In the activity the switch was supposed to control the light bulb while the receptacle stayed hot all the time. Other labs would require students to be able to turn the receptacle on and off with the switch.  Once students master this they may be required to do more complex electrical wiring activities.
