### Description

Do you like Circuit Construction Kit: DC, but want to use only in-line ammeters? This is the sim for you! Experiment with an electronics kit. Build circuits with batteries, resistors, ideal and non-Ohmic light bulbs, fuses, and switches. Determine if everyday objects are conductors or insulators, and take measurements with a lifelike ammeter and voltmeter. View the circuit as a schematic diagram, or switch to a lifelike view.

### Sample Learning Goals

• Explore basic electricity relationships.
• Explain basic electricity relationships in series and parallel circuits.
• Use an ammeter and voltmeter to take readings in circuits.
• Provide reasoning to explain the measurements and relationships in circuits.
• Build circuits from schematic drawings.
• Determine if common objects are conductors or insulators.
