Thanks to Mr. Dehetre for sharing this update about what our 8th grade students are working on in the STEAM Lab:
8th grade students in the STEAM lab are learning about electronics by building a "Blinky" kit. A Blinky is a small electronics training kit, which, when properly built, will make a series of LEDs flash on and off randomly.  Each kit contains various electronic components such as LEDs, resistors, transistors, capacitors and much more. I talk with the students about what each component does and how they work within the circuit. Safe and proper soldering techniques are taught before students begin their work work.
