STEM in Integrated Math and Science

At Middle School South, Mrs. Alexander, Mr. Hope, & Ms. Robinson have started a STEM unit in Electronics with their classes.  Electronics play an important and increasing role in our everyday lives. Some basic knowledge of electricity and electronics is beneficial for everyone.  The students are building circuits using a kit called Snap Circuits.  They are learning about the basic components of a circuit board as well as resistors, capacitors, transistors and motors. Building the circuits is developing their scientific investigation ability as well as their trouble-shooting and problem solving skills.
