Safely Experiment with Circuits on Circuits.io

Circuits.io is a free website on which you can design and test electrical circuits. You can design your circuits using the virtual version of components that you could purchase and place on a circuit board. As you design your circuits, Circuits.io will tell you if your circuits will work or not.

Applications for Education
Earlier this year I shared a run-down of seven good resources for teaching and learning about electricity. In that list you will find Squishy Circuits which offers a fun and safe way for kids to learn about circuits in a hands-on lesson. But if you and your students are ready to move into more complex circuits, you should take a look at Circuits.io.
