Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the straight line motion principles of position & displacement
 1. Why position is important 
 2. How position and displacement are closely connected. 
 3. How negative and positive numbers are used to understand direction and displacement of objects moving in a straight line
 4. How a simple DC circuit works
 5. How to design, build, test & measure, retry. As they improve their initial design
I am an electronic test system design engineer with 15 years working experience as a STEM professional. I really enjoy teaching STEM and passing on the passion of STEM to the next generation.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents should be prepared to help their student build their propeller cars. Some students will choose to use a hot glue gun or to solder small electrical connections to their battery
Students can find the supplies for this STEM project in the learner supply list
