Thinking teachers produce thinking students. Keep the USA the world's center of innovation, by supporting those students that will become scientists and engineers. Science and math education must be improved.
The children of this generation are not as technically savvy as those in the last decade. Most of them have not been taught or encouraged to repair items when they are broken or take the initiative to find out how their technological devices work. Several countries are producing engineers at a rate that far exceeds the USA, because of their great emphasis placed on math and science and we have to address and rectify this situation now. I have learned by experience if we encourage and instruct our kids to complete projects that first may seem like rocket science to them, but as their level of curiosity increases, so does their confidence. Example, last year I did not have supplies for my kids for lab experiments, so I had to buy what I could afford. I bought the kids popsicle sticks and had them to create boats, bridges, and DNA molecules. At first it seemed like rocket science to them, but quickly their level of curiosity increased, they were excited and confident about completing their tasks and the principal was marveled. Thinking teachers produce thinking students.!
This project will help the students to gain a better understanding of what scientists and engineers do and gain an interest in science. The students will understand circuits, wiring, Ohm's Law, and many other physics concepts and be able to make a connection with devices that encounter on a day to day basis. It will spark their curiosity and they will hopefully want to wire up their own speakers or take their playstations apart and put it back together again.
The students will realize how important it is to solidify their foundations in science and math, so that one day they maybe able to contribute their great intellectual capabilities to our country, so that we can keep the USA the world's center of innovation, by supporting those students that will become scientists and engineers
