5th Grade STEM ROCKS!

For the past year, the IEEE Orlando Section has sponsored a variety of hands-on 5th Grade STEM ROCKS! outreach workshops at Tildenville Elementary School and at Three Points Elementary School. At these events, IEEE Orlando Section members, IEEE Valencia College Student Chapter members, various other engineers and engineering and technology students from other local area colleges and universities all come together to encourage 5th grade students to build squishy circuits and squishy Aliens with light up eyes and spinning tails and flying saucer and fan snap circuits.

We also demonstrate the operation of a 12 V DC portable solar power system that is used to charge the batteries that power the circuits they build. We also discuss what types of careers might involve some of the technology that they were learning about that day. We always end our workshops encouraging these 5th graders to stay strong in their math and science subjects so that one day they could have an exciting career involving engineering and technology.

Our next STEM Rocks! event is Friday, May 24th, at 1 PM at Three Points Elementary School and may involve solar powered fans and cars so come on out and join the volunteering fun! Feel free to check out http://stem-rocks.org/eventpics.html for past event photos…
