Engineering Prototyping & Simulation
Ready to level up your classroom? Do what you do best, and spend time teaching instead of searching for cool STEM lesson plans. We’ve got you covered!
EPS Lesson #1, Simple Prototypes, is a two-hour lesson plan designed to familiarize students with circuit components. At the end of this lesson, students should be able to create models and prototypes using Ohm’s Law, Computer Simulations, and Real-World Electronic Hardware.
Simple Prototypes addresses the Essential Question: how do we properly use simple electrical components together in a circuit?
A. Simple Circuits & Components: LED’s, Resistors, Batteries, and Breadboards
B. Ohm’s Law: how to use the formula in applied circuits
C. Series & Parallel Circuits: What’s the difference between the two and how do we wire these circuits on a breadboard?
D. LED’s and Voltage Drop (Forward Voltage): Calculate Resistor values for LED’s in Series and Parallel
E. How to Wire a Breadboard: Learn the methodology of safely building and prototyping circuits
F. Simulated Circuits: Design and Test out your circuits before wiring up real hardware
This Lesson was developed using Nationally Recognized Education Standards: NGSS, Common Core Mathematics, and Georgia Standards of Excellence. Teachers in other states should have no problem aligning these lessons to their classrooms, too!
