Curriculum Lesson Plan

Section 1 - A Little More About Basics

This module begins with recapitulation of the basics from Electronics for Kids Level 1 after which students will be introduced to series and parallel connections and their effect on the circuit.

1.1 - Ohm’s Law and LED Basics
What is the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance and how to use it to light up an LED?
1.2 - Series and Parallel Connection
What are resistor series and parallel connections? How do they affect the brightness of an LED in an electronic circuit?

Section 2 - All About Signals

Students will be introduced to digital signals, analog signals, tactile switches, potentiometers, and capacitors with the help of hands-on STEM activities based on evive.

2.1 - ABC of Analog Signal
What is an electrical signal? What is an analog signal? What are its characteristics? What is a potentiometer? How to visualize a signal on evive's mini oscilloscope?
2.2 - ABC of Digital Signal
What is a digital signal? What are its characteristics? What is a switch? What are its types? How does it behave?
2.3 - LED Circuit with Switch and Potentiometer
How to control the brightness and the state of a LED using a potentiometer and a switch?
2.4 - Visualizing Resisitor-Capacitor Circuits
What are capacitors and their effect on a circuit? Why does an LED's brightness vary slowly due to capacitor charging and discharging?

Section 3 - Do-It-Yourself!

After gaining ample knowledge of the basics of electronics, students will make an exciting DIY electronics project using evive by implementing that knowledge.
