Here's what you need to make a glow stick!
Cut off the electric plug that has the two prongs
Cut off four bulbs
Cut the wire as close to the fifth bulb as possible so you have about three inches of wire at each end of the string.
Separate the wires
Strip the ends of the wire
Pop a snap cap onto the 9-volt battery
Both snap cap wires should have about ½ inch of exposed metal wire at the end. Strip them if necessary.
Make a connection
Complete the circuit
Complete the circuit by attaching the other two exposed wires as in Step 7.
Test the circuit
Did you know?
A circuit is a path along which electricity can travel. When you connect the wires from the lights to the wires on the snap cap, you’ve made a circuit. When all parts of the circuit are connected, electricity flows from the battery to the lights and back to the battery, making your glow stick glow!
