👩💻 PhysicsKIT4STEM has as primary objective to strengthen the teaching skills of STEM educators by offering a hands-on approach to teach physics through DIY kits, electronics, and programming, powered by a Raspberry Pi computer. At the same, the project aims to increase the interest of students in the sciences and address the issue of gender imbalance in STEM classrooms and encourage young girls to science and engineering subjects. 👩🔬
So far the consortium has proceeded with:
👉 The development of the curriculum for using the PhysicsKIT to teach students physics concepts such as motion and forces, gravity, vibration and electricity, through the creation of hands-on constructions, simple programming and physical computing.
👉An elaborate Glossary, explaining terms used in physics, programming, electronics and physical computing.
👉 The design and development of the PhysicsKIT powered by a Raspberry Pi single-board computer, complemented by sensors and electronics to simulate and experiment on physics phenomena along with a guide to build it.
