4th Grade in the STEM Lab – Electricity!

Blog by Mr. Misch:

Fourth graders are currently learning about electricity in STEM. Their task is to create an alarm circuit for an Australian station or ranch. The purpose of the alarm circuit is to notify the farmer when the sheeps’ water trough is empty with both a light and a buzzer. This task is a big challenge as it requires the students to synthesize their knowledge of circuits and simple machines.
