Introduction to electronic technology


The world of electronics is significantly influencing the environment in which we live. It is critical for children to understand basic electronic principles so that they have control over the technological environment around them and can make smart decisions. Basic electronics principles are not taught in the school curriculum.

STEM Education’s proposed program fills this void in an interesting and entertaining way. How do a processor and its memory work, and how do they differ? How do device power supplies work, and what are the key elements by which we choose them? How do LED, neon, and fluorescent lights work, and how do we select a bulb? What antennas are used for wired and wireless data transmission? How are color and sound converted into data, and how are images and video displayed on screens?

These are some of the questions that will be answered during the program’s fun activities.


On completion of the program, students will have:

  1. become familiar with the basic principles of electronics,
  2. created their own circuits to investigate the concepts of the project,
  3. developed critical thinking and expertise about electronic devices they use in their everyday lives,
  4. answer real-world questions according to the STEM methodology.
