STEM learning experiences can be powerful tools for helping students develop a broad range of skills and competencies; but creating a coherent STEM lesson can be challenging. In this webinar, we’ll show how you can engage students in exciting STEM activities that incorporate concepts from core topics, while helping students develop data literacy and computational thinking skills. Join us to learn how you can use real-world STEM challenges to help students develop dynamic skill sets.

This 90-minute session will show how to get more out of your PASCO’s Modular Circuits kits. Participants will learn how to use Modular Circuits for labs and activities about series and parallel circuits, Ohm’s Law, capacitors and electrical power. The webinar will show how the potentiometer module and spring clip module can be used by students to estimate the temperature of a lightbulb filament and investigate the characteristics of diodes. With the addition of some inexpensive LEDs, they can estimate Planck’s constant. More advanced activities using the optional wireless AC/DC module and other accessories will be discussed. Lab handouts, teacher guides, sample data files and links to more resources will be shared.
