Electronics for kids Level - 1

Learning outcomes

After completing this curriculum, students will have a basic understanding of electronics, circuit design, actuators and sensors with the help of a wide variety of STEM activities. The activities in this curriculum will help them develop skills such as problem-solving and debugging techniques, DIY-ing, teamwork, and creativity

Students will be introduced to the building blocks of electronics - voltage, current, resistance, Ohm’s Law, how circuits work, and the basics of LEDs with the help of hands-on STEM activities based on AAA Academy stem classroom Bundle

  • Lesson 1.1 - Voltage
  • Lesson 1.2 - Current and Resistors
  • Lesson 1.3 - Ohm's Law and LED Basics

Students will learn how simple actuators like the DC motor and servo motor work with the help of hands-on STEM activities based on AAA Academy stem classroom Bundle.

  • Lesson 2.1 - Introduction to DC Motors
  • Lesson 2.2 - DIY Turntable
  • Lesson 2.3 - Introduction to Servo Motors

Students will learn how sensors work and how to visualize the output of different sensors with the help of hands-on STEM activities based on Ardiuno.

  • Lesson 3.1 - Introduction to Sensors
  • Lesson 3.2 - Touch Sensors - Conductors or Insulators

After learning the basics of electronics, students will make a capstone project like railway crossing barriers, car vipers, or a spinning mop. The project is not limited to these only and students can take any other projects as well if the project uses the learning from the curriculum. The students will work on the project up to 3 sessions depending on the engagement. Craft material like cardboard, string, rubber bands and other should be provided to the student. In the first session, students will be briefed about the capstone project. Then, they will get time to ideate on the project and make rough sketches of the model they want to make. They will also list down the material required to build the project. In the second and the third session, students will make the project.
