Our students have great potential, but sometimes, the limited resources makes it challenging for them to excel. Given the right tools, I believe that they will be able to gain the confidence needed to pursue STEM or STEM-related career fields.
One thing I've discovered about our students is how much they love to create.
This was evident in our circuit building project where they wired a miniature 2 room house in series and parallel. Then they had to furnish it as if they were going to sell it. I was amazed at their creativity in how they decorated their rooms. I plan to use the resources from this project to further these types of projects.
My students love to create and build things. The materials requested will help them to learn the basics of physics and also allow them to create projects that relate physics to everyday life.
Examples of real-world projects is the electric house project.
In this project, students will construct a miniature electric house and attach wires in series and parallel. They will apply what they learn about series and parallel circuits. The final project will have lights that turn on and off, by using a switch. Another project is the car crash safety project. In this project, students will learn about impulse and momentum and create a "crumple zone" which we will test with a lab cart.
