Students designed a game and learned how to create simple circuits.
A Visitor from the CIJE Organization
Yafa Lam, a representative from CIJE, joined our 7th graders. Our goal was to learn about circuitry and voltage.
Objective: What can we do to help people in need?
Today our seventh grade students were able to understand that anyone can make a change. They can take actionable measures to help others in need. Students have learned about parallel circuits and series circuits and are creating different games for the lower school to participate in a carnival. Student had to go through an engineering design process to create their concept. The seventh graders came up with different ideas to make their games aesthetically and scientifically appealing.
What is a Parallel Circuit and Series Circuit?
The CIJE-Tech Middle School program is based on problem-solving and project based learning approaches to solving grade level curricula. Students gain an understanding of how key STEM concepts are applied. The CIJE-Tech MS curriculum involves inquiry based lessons and activities, where students carry out hands-on investigations that encourage critical thinking and problem solving. The CIJE-Tech MS curriculum is comprised of hands-on, minds-on activities through which students realize the application and relevance of their Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics education. The ultimate goal is to produce successful self-directed learners who are equipped to excel and face the challenges of the future.
