The generosity of LEF has allowed the students in Physics and Physics I to be able to utilize a more STEM based approach to learning electricity, electromagnets and the workings of a motor. The CPO Electricity Kits and Motor kits have allowed the Physics and Physics I students at MHS to experience hands on activities relating to electric circuits as well as the workings of a motor. Previously my students had to use Christmas tree lights I had cut apart and stripped to make circuits. This did not allow them to see the effects on the voltage when connected in parallel and series. The CPO kits allow my students to experience all aspects of electricity in the lab, which carries over to a better understanding of electricity conceptually as well.
