Mr. H. from Mooresville NC is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Circular Reasoning = Circuits, Applications, and Fuel Cells

My students need tools for hands on electronic learning - building applications. The fuel cell kit, Arduino, FM radio kit and clock set allow kids to build their own applications in class. Many need these skill for jobs later.

My Students

My students represent a wide variety of demographics economically, racially, and in regards to learning needs. 25% of our kids are 504/IEP. We are located in an area where the average household income is 100K + our kids are 30% free and reduced lunch.

This school is a fairly new one in an area where lots of parents are looking for options to both challenge and support their kids.

Many come here for more individualized service while others need genuine IEP/504 support. Our finances are limited due to NC policy of keeping 30% of funds for student in their local districts. We are investing in more essential learning support materials.

We are starting an Engineering program, and our kids are excited about it. Some are involved in after school academic programs investing 200+ hours after school to compete. Some can certain go find materials they need for building and engineering project but most cannot and do miss the best learning opportunity due to a lack of materials in the classroom. This challenge makes it much more difficult to meet the needs of our kids.

My Project

The materials listed under Circular Reasoning are part of a series of activities that give students an opportunity to build circuits that have a function. We will use these tools to give kids an exciting hands on opportunity to build circuits that have applications.

The kids will build a solar-hydrogen powered car, a working FM radio, a wide range of circuit controllers and schematics, and finally the kids will use soldering to build their own functionally clock.

These activities can help build a foundation of interest and skills for understanding and applying functional circuits on a wide variety of project parameters. Student will develop an appreciation for machine applications such as reed switch interfacing, use of rotary encoders and using a variable to control brushless motors.

Exposure to these activities will serve as a preface to our last Energy and Environment project to bring into their personal experience a familiarization with tech about which kids normally do not have a first hand practical knowledge. I genuinely believe that such experience could build an openness to these fields of electronics and machinery that open a wide range of job opportunities for students.
