This week, students in the TOPS Design course have started the Electrical Components unit of the course. Students are currently learning the basics of electronics, such as reading electrical schematics and soldering wires. These skills will come handy soon as students will be building Bumper-Bots in the near future…from scratch!
This week, grade 9 students experimented with different kinds of elements. Students tested the properties of metals, metalloids, and non-metals to gain better understanding of the different elemental families in the periodic table. Hands-on experiments are a fun way to reinforce theoretical lessons!
