American STEM Prep's circuits curriculum offers a comprehensive approach to learning about electricity and electronics, with a focus on hands-on experience and real-world application. Students learn to design, build, and test circuits and devices using a variety of tools and components, and they gain experience with coding and programming to control and manipulate electronic systems. Our curriculum integrates engineering and technology, encouraging students to solve problems using real-world projects. This allows them to see how the principles of electronics and engineering apply to everyday life, which can spark their interest and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM fields. Through hands-on experimentation, students learn to think creatively and critically to solve problems, developing skills that are valuable not just in STEM fields, but in virtually any career.
American STEM Prep offers a comprehensive circuits curriculum that starts with the fundamentals in Elementary School using Sphero littleBits. Sphero littleBits is a unique program designed to provide students with a hands-on approach to learning the basics of circuits and engineering. These colorful and magnetic building blocks not only make learning fun but also enable students to experiment and explore, igniting their curiosity and helping them develop a love for science, technology, engineering,
and mathematics (STEM). The program also fosters critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as students work together to design and build their own circuits and devices.
As they move on to Middle and High school at American STEM Prep, they will continue to explore the world of circuits using more advanced tools like Arduino, BBC microbit, Makey Makey, and Raspberry Pi. With these devices, students will create exciting and challenging projects that will test their knowledge and encourage them to think outside of the box. Our program not only develops valuable skills, but also nurtures creativity, problem-solving, and innovation. Moreover, our circuits program provides students with hands-on experience and exposure to the world of engineering and technology, giving them a competitive edge in their future careers.
