Franklin's Lab Release Info

Article last updated:

Franklin's Lab provides an environment to build and troubleshoot circuits. Learners are guided through the basics of electrical current flow and then challenged to solve problems in circuits that are malfunctioning. Franklin's Lab also offers learners the ability to design their own circuits using motors, LEDs, resistors and various conductive materials.
