TermDefinition
circuit A conductive pah for electrons (electricity) that starts and finishes in the same place
conductors Substances that transport charged electrons (electricity)
current The amount of electricity flowing through a circuit, measured in amperes
design optimization To improve or adjust a design to assure it best meets all design criteria
electricity A form of energy made up of charged electrons
electrons Charged atomic particles from the outer shell of an atom
energy Ability to do work; make things move or change
engineering An engineer takes on the challenge of understanding a problem and designing a solution to address the problem
green energy Electric energy that comes from a source that cannot be used up (such as sun rays or wind)
LED lights A light-emitting diode that releases light in the form of photons when activated by electricity
parallel As in lines side by side that have the same space between them at all points along the lines
parallel circuit The current divides as it flows through separate branches of a circuit and then is re-combined
power source Source of electric energy
renewable energy Energy that is from a renewable source
resistance How difficult it is for electricity to flow through something measured in ohms
resistor Something that makes it difficult for current to flow through a circuit (such as an LED light)
series circuit The electric current passes through each resistor in a circuit in consecutive order
