Title: PhET Signal Circuit - Circuit, Electricity, Current
Url: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/signal-circuit
Publisher: University of Colorado, Boulder
Description: Why do the lights turn on in a room as soon as you flip a switch? Flip the switch and electrons slowly creep along a wire. The light turns on when the signal reaches it. This simulation of a Signal Circuit is from the Physics Education Technology website of University of Colorado. Included are links to related topics and additional ideas and activities for teachers to use.
