Electronics lab is an essential part of our STEAM curriculum aimed at imparting electronics and electrical skills among students.
Almost every tech tool that we use today is an electronic accessory. Therefore, there is a dire need for students today to be well aware of what circuitry they hold in their hands and what works how.
This electronics lab is a step towards the idea that the students ought to be well versed with the products that they use and find around them. This knowledge will also open up new opportunities for those who want to make a career out of it.
To familiarize the students with the various components and the different laws, a curriculum is followed that runs parallel to the topics taught to them in their respective classes. This curriculum covers all the topics that are taught in class, along with additional concepts to further enhance their level of knowledge. This is achieved by letting the kids perform projects and experiments that cover the electronics-related topics and allowing them to practice and improvise with the circuits taught to them.
The classes are divided on the basic of the grades of the students.
Suitable for Grades 6th to 12th
Through this training course, we help students cover their basics by using breadboards and other components of a circuit like jumper wires, resistances, heat sensor, moisture sensors, transistors, variable resistances, switches, etc. These components are used to teach the construction and working of the circuits.
Suitable for 6th to 8th Grades
The students from this are taught Snap Circuits and the basics of Arduino by enrolling in this course.
Snap Circuits is a novel board created by Elenco in which various components like LEDs, bulbs, alarms and photo resistors are present, along with wires that can be snapped together on a board without the hassle of twisting wires and messy circuits.
Kids are introduced to electrical circuits and various electronic components and the laws governing the various parameters like current, voltage, resistance, etc. are taught through hands-on learning. These hands-on activities ensure that the kids have fun while grasping the ideas behind the working of the circuits.
This knowledge is helpful not only when they are dealing with the domain of electronics but can also come handy in day-to-day life.
Arduino is an open sourced hardware development board that is used for designing electronic projects. As a part of elementary training, we teach the basics of Arduino. This involves the components and working of Arduino board, along with the basic experiments using LED lights.
Suitable for 9th to 12th Grades
Once done with the basics, kids can then move onto much more advanced concepts which are taught using Arduino.
From classes 9th onwards, it can be used to teach students about both hardware and interfacing the board with various peripherals and sensors like ultrasonic, sound, light, Infrared, and so on.
It is also used along with Arduino’s IDE programming environment to give the students a thorough knowledge of how the code and the sensors work in synchronization.
With Arduino, your child has a limitless world to explore. They can build voltage detector, joystick, call answering machines, complicated robots, and countless other projects using their knowledge of Arduino.
Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer mainly used to teach programming. From surveillance cameras to Internet of Things, there are various projects made by Raspberry Pi enthusiasts across the globe.
In our electronics lab, kids are familiarized with the basics of the Pi board with the help of simple projects.
