As you can probably tell from the photo, it makes her very happy. Deliriously happy! Perhaps because it ties into her goal of learning how to build robots that wash the dishes and clean up after people so she can build them and make loads of money (her dream, not my dream for her).
So far she's built alarms, fans, lights and learned how light switches work. She's learned that metals that conduct electricity such as paperclips can be used to complete a circuit and that electricity can only pass in one direction through an LED. She's also learned the difference between building in parallel versus in a series. (By the way, I should mention here that I have also learned much of this as we go along.)
And that water also conducts electricity and can be used to complete a circuit. (Don't worry it was a safe setup.)
"Mom, just tell me, what happens when I put the wires in the water."
"If I told you, you wouldn't remember, but if you do the experiment yourself, you will never forget."

I guess some people just have to learn things the hard way.
