DC Circuit Builder

The Physics Classroom is glad to join efforts with our friends at Nerd Island Studios in order to offer website visitors the DC Circuit Builder Interactive. This HTML5 simulation provides a learner with a virtual circuit builder in order to build and explore circuit concepts. DC Circuit Builder can be used to easily explore simple circuits, series circuits, parallel circuits, combination circuits, and more. Being an HTML5 simulation, it is compatible with tablets such as the iPad, with Chromebooks, and with all mobile devices.

Launch DC Circuit Builder

Learners are encouraged to open the simulator and explore. Or if desired, The Physics Classroom has prepared five different activities for a more directed experience.

Learners and Instructors may also be interested in viewing the accompanying Notes page. Technical information, teaching suggestions, and related resources that complement this Interactive are provided on the Notes page. View Notes.

Our DC Circuit Builder simulation is now available with Concept Checkers. Do the simulation. Then follow it up with a Concept Checker. We have Concept Checkers that align with three of our five activities (others will be available soon). 

Finally, if you enjoyed the DC Circuit Builder, then you might also enjoy some of Nerd Island Studios other creations such as the Step-2-Step app for the iPad. Visit Nerd Island Studios for more great stuff.
