Electricity is the flow of electrons. It flows best in materials that have loosely bound electrons in their atoms. That is true of most metals, and of those metals Silver is about the best with Copper next and then Aluminum. Electricity isn't really made. It's more like it is pumped. The job of a generator is more like that of a large pump - it pushes electrons around electrical circuits, and the flow of electrons is called, as before, electricity. Here are a few of the better sites that explain electricity: http://www.dairynet.com/kids/electric.html http://nyelabs.kcts.org/teach/episodeguides/eg18.html http://www.ccsd.k12.wy.us/Science/05/0502magnetism.html Good luck with your project, Sid.
