In this activity students will build a wearable complete electrical circuit.
Sewn Circuits are a more challenging activity, because they involve hand-sewing. Conductive thread is typically spun from stainless steel fibres. It is a little bit more slippery than cotton thread, but is easy to work with for simple hand sewing.
A complete circuit is an uninterrupted path for electrons to flow from an energy source (i.e. battery or household power), through a device and back to the source. If we break that path, the flow of electrons stops, and we no longer get energy from our circuit, and the device(often a light bulb or LED) no longer has power.
