Created by Work-Ready Electronics, a project of the Advanced Technological Education program, this module walks visitors through the basics of micro embedded controllers. The content of the site is divided into four areas: how micros are used, microcontroller architecture, microcontroller memory, input/output interfaces. There is a quiz for each in the Knowledge Probe area, and the Learning Resources section contains three activities to help cement student understanding. There are also further resources - both print and Web based - for more information and two Questors, a Flash trivia game. The Notebook function allows visitors to take notes and review them at any time. This is an excellent resource students and educators in electronics technician programs.

This is an activity about structures in space. Learners will construct two different types of trusses to develop an understanding of engineering design for truss structures and the role of shapes in the strength of structures. For optimum completion - this activity should span 3 class periods to allow the glue on the structures to dry. This is engineering activity 1 of 2 found in the ISS L.A.B.S. Educator Resource Guide.

This resource from the Guitarbuilding.org project uses the example of swirl-dipped guitars to illustrate "classification of matter, hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds, and forces within liquids." Since it is not feasible for a class to have an actual instrument to work with, the students will use common items including paper plates, food coloring and shaving cream to replicate the process. Teacher and student handouts are included in the document.This is the first part of a two-part activity; the second part may be found here.

In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height. This activity is a fun way for learners to become more familiar with polymers and their uses. Safety note: The "Teacher Notes for Level 1" link contains a number of safety guidelines that should be read before doing this activity.

This lab will present design entry, simulation, and prototyping with tools that are provided by XilinxР_пл ISE 9.1i for this purpose. We will show how a complete simple design circuit of the half adder can be directly entered into XilinxР_пл ISE 9.1i for synthesis, post synthesis simulation and timing analysis. Also, the design and creation of Half Adder symbol will be explained. We will show the implementation of more complex designs in future labs by running them through the design flow illustrated in this lab.

Over the course of several days, learners explore the property of water that helps plants move water from roots to leaves or gives paper towels the capacity to soak up water. Learners will observe water's ability to move through narrow tube-like spaces known as capillaries, in an investigation called Colorizing Carnations. Learners then modify the variables in their activity to test how capillary action is affected by soapy water, salty water, different liquids and/or different plants.
