Electrical Engineering at BBS!

by Conner (grade 7)

Zion (grade K) showing off
his machine
Sawyer (grade 4) working on his invention
Have you ever wondered what makes a fan work or an alarm clock buzz? 

Making inventions in our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) class is helping us understand how things work.  We have been working on basic electrical engineering.  We can use different parts for our inventions like leads, batteries, motors, and metal pieces like paperclips and aluminum foil.  We make inventions using these parts and recycled materials to make containers, switches, propellers, or wings.  My invention was a flashlight.  I liked how Kellen (grade 3) made an insect-o-copter with a variety of wings. Inanna (grade 6) made a lamp. Making these inventions has helped us understand how circuits work better.  I’m looking forward to doing more with this and learning more about electricity.
