Electrical Systems: Steady Hand Game

Using their understanding of electrical systems and design, pupils are challenged with designing and creating a steady hand game. Pupils will use nets to create their bases and their knowledge of electrical circuits to build a circuit with a buzzer which closes when the handle makes contact with the wire frame
