IBM Visit

Students worked with IBM engineers to explore and investigate electrical circuits. 
  • I learned that if you have a solar panel  you will get more energy based on how much surface area is showing to the light.
  • I learned about electrons, electrical current, and voltage. I also learned about how the electrons move and what prevents them from moving. What prevents the electrons from moving are called insulators. The path the electrons follow when forced are called conductors. They allow easy movement of electrons through them. Another thing I learned was that if the voltage it high enough, the electricity will pass through it anyways.
  • They gave advice like even though you don't like math or science you should still do it because it opens up more opportunities in the future. 
  • Also they said that math and science are the two main school skills you should have to become an engineer.
