The Juniors in the Urban Planning class have been pursuing the guiding question, how do you design a shared space to minimize the use of resources & maximize the quality of life?. In the second unit of this STEAM course, students are investigating the concept of power and examining how to efficiently power a city. Students are learning about the fundamentals of magnets, static electricity, current electricity, circuits, voltage, amps, and resistance. As a part of their investigation, students visited Robot City Workshop to take a closer look at how to build circuits on a breadboard. Each student was given a breadboard kit and a simple robot.
The purpose of this Field Experience is for the students take a closer look at electricity and circuits.
The students worked on a breadboard to build a simple machine.
