Episode Summary

EDIT
Electricity
AIRED:

It's time for Bill Nye to shed a little light on electricity.
Electricity might seem mysterious, but once you understand the science the light goes on (so to speak).
You flip a switch, and the lights turn on. You push the play button, and your personal stereo starts playing
music. When you flip the switch or push play, you start a flow of electrons. Electricity is the flow of
electrons, and electrons are very tiny charged particles. Electrons are found in atoms, the tiny pieces that
all stuff is made from. We can make electrons flow in two ways. Batteries make electricity by mixing up
chemicals -- making a chemical reaction that forces electrons to move in a path from the battery to the
personal stereo and back to the battery. Electricity that turns on lights in your home is made by power
plants. Most power plants use big machines called generators to make electrons by twirling wire in a
magnet. The magnet makes electrons in the wire move around, creating electricity. Electrons really know
how to go with the flow.
Electricity sure gets Bill charged up, so be sure to watch the show!
