Y10/Y11 STEM Update
July 19, 2018
ACEP Academic year 2018 is off to a flying start with ACEP STEM. We have several Y11 students that have returned from studying abroad. And I believe the Y11 students are surprised at how far they have advanced compared to the students that have just returned. It is rewarding as a teacher to see the students learn how to do the some of the various skills needed to make our modern electronic world possible.
The Y11 students will soon start assembling their mini (tiny tiny) 4bit computer processor. Some of our students are getting very proficient at assembly. It is becoming difficult as an instructor to stay ahead of their ability! But that is a good thing!!!!
One of the photos is a mosaic of several of our students work. I think you will be impressed. They are gaining confidence, learning to work independently, using and understanding technical English more, and are learning to persevere through challenging times with every new project.
We will soon enter the theoretical part of the class so that they can better understand what they are building and get ready for the Science Fair for those who want to do an electronic project. It is going to be an exciting year! I can’t wait!!!!
