Science & Nature

It's STEM -tastic! Current Electricity + Virtual Lab

In this one-time science class, we'll investigate the basics of electrical circuits, terms & symbols. Learners will explore engaging virtual lab challenges using batteries, lightbulbs, resistors & switches. ESL students are welcome!

Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic vocabulary and symbols for electrical circuits.  They will also learn what is necessary to complete a simple circuit, as well as how resistors, switches and batteries contribute to the output of the circuit.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be using two third-party sites for this class: Abridge Academy curriculum and the online electricity lab via the University of Colorado.  Sign in will not be required for either page.  The students will view the Abridge Academy from my shared screen.  I will give them the link for the online lab, so that they will be able to participate interactively.  No personal information or sign in will be necessary.
Abridge Academy - abridgeacademy.com
Online Lab - PhET interactive simulations; University of Colorado, Boulder; phet.colorado.edu

About Me

Hello!  I am very excited to meet you.  My favorite classes to teach are science classes, specifically physical science.  Do you like working with electricity?  Magnets?  These are examples of physical science and two of the topics I enjoy...
