How To Get Started With Your A+ STEM Lab
A lot of teachers ask me what is a good way to get started once I have my A+ STEM Lab.
The first experiment I recommend to elementary teachers is "Are your hands warmer than mine?"
It’s a great way to introduce the students to their first probe - the temperature sensor. It will also teach them how to use the data logger and graphing software.
Plus, the students will have fun trying to raise the temperature by rubbing their hands together. They´ll make it into a fun game while learning all the different components.
