We are enjoying Supercharged Science once again!
The boys are learning about Electricity! Today we worked on Simple Circuits. My oldest son LOVES learning about how to fix thing and how things work. He was a happy student today!
Sometimes you can tell early on a child’s bent or even calling. I don’t know what my eldest son is going to do for a living but I do know that he LOVES Engineering!
What made me the most proud today? Circuits can be very frustrating to work with and figure out. Any little thing will make a circuit not work and you can spend more time than you want to trying to figure out why it’s not working. He was having difficulty with his circuit and I told him to refer back to the video and the comments of other students online to help him. He insisted and said that he was instead going to try to figure it out himself.
Well, he did!
As a teacher, it brings me such joy when I see my students succeed in a particular challenge! Nothing like that smile of pride on their faces!
I think this is going to be a favorite subject this year, once again!
