Abstract

This project involved the creation of an educational program for teaching electronics to middle school students, as well as conducting a pilot course at the Eli Whitney Museum and Workshop in Hamden, CT. Hands-on activities were developed, along with take-home kits, student notebooks, an instructor's guide and video, for ease of implementation. The program proved successful and will be offered on a regular basis. Future electronics summer camps are planned, and the museum has advertized the course on its website.
