Investigating the effect of increasing the number of cells in an electrical circuit

Year Six were working extremely hard in science again this afternoon. They had to measure the brightness of a bulb using data logging equipment and investigate how the brightness changed as they added extra cells to the circuit. It took lots of teamwork and concentration! They found out that the bulb got significantly brighter each time they increased the number of cells; The greater the number of cells, the brighter the bulb will be. We discussed what might happen to the bulb if we continued adding more cells and concluded that the bulb would eventually break- so we didn’t try it! Great teamwork Year Six.
