Activity: Super Blackout
By Jonathan Tilly

1. Create a football stadium using a cardboard box and found materials.

2. Use a 6V battery, 3 flashlight bulbs, and 4 insulated wires to create a circuit connected in a series. Attach the lights to the top of the box using clips and tape.

3. Be prepared to explain why your design is sturdy. After all, you wouldn’t want the lights to go out during the biggest game of the year, would you?
