STEM TECH KITS FOR PLTW
STEM Technology Starter Kits Donation
Wayne Baer and Max Baer (BHS '17), present Karuna Parmar (BHS-PLTW, CAD Drafting Teacher) STEM Technology Starter Kits.
In honor of Max Baer's maternal grandparents, Gene and Mary Podrazik, Wayne and Max Baer presented a generous donation of STEM Technology Starter Kits to the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program at Barrington High School. The objective is to help students quickly climb the product-prototype learning curve with these technology kits. Final group projects ranged from last-minute thinking to elegant simplicity. The learning curve between the groups was the initiative for this donation. The five kits cover a broad spectrum - from basic (materials, fasteners, adhesives) to advanced (Microcontrollers [e.g. Ardunio, Raspberry], sensors, & accessory electronics). These kits will promote better hands-on learning, quicker prototyping, and ultimately student knowledge in STEM.
