Curriculum Lesson Plan

Section 1 - A Little More About Basics

This section begins with recapitulating 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 Ohm's Law - relation between voltage, current, and resistance? How to glow a LED?
1.2 - Series and Parallel Connection
What are resistor series and parallel connection and its effect the brightness of the 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 using evive.
2.1 - ABC of Analog Signal
How to visualize an analog signal generated from the potentiometer on evive's mini oscilloscope.
2.2 - ABC of Digital Signal
How to visualize a digital signal generated from a switch on evive's mini oscilloscope.
2.3 - LED Circuit with Switch and Potentiometer
Control the brightness of a LED using potentiometer and the state of the LED using switches using evive.
2.4 - Visualizing Resisitor-Capacitor Circuits
What are capacitors and their effect on a circuit? Visualizing charging and discharging of the capacitor on an RC circuit using evive Mini Oscilloscope.

Section 3 - Do-It-Yourself!

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