About this Site  

The Blobz Guide to Electric Circuits is an interactive learning tool to support Units 4F and 6G of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 Science -- namely "Circuits and Conductors" and "Changing Circuits" respectively.

The site is designed to be tactile and 'hands on', (using technologies such as drag and drop) in order to make this as rich a learning experience as possible.

The site requires the Flash 6 browser plugin from Macromedia. This plugin is free and quick to download. If you do not have it, get it here.

This project was developed by Andy Thelwell as part of the 'Hypermedia' module at Staffordshire University, under the guidance of Dr. Melissa Lee Price.
