Some substances are conductors of electricity. This means they allow a current to pass through them. Other substances do not let a current pass through them and they are called non-conductors.

In this experiment we will look at elements – metal elements and non-metal elements.

The aim of this experiment is to test the electrical conductivity of some metals and nonmetals and from the results work out a general rule about the electrical conductivity of elements.

Electrical Conductivity – Pupil

Electrical Conductivity – Teacher/Technician

Electrical Conductivity – Risk Assessment
