Title

P12 Resource Exchange -- Electronics of Everyday Things

Abstract

Electronics projects can connect concepts in engineering and measurement to other STEM topics. Use of the versatile 555 timer integrated circuit (IC) is shown for projects that produce light, sound, and motion outputs that are similar to those found in everyday devices, e.g. telephones, appliances, and toys. The resources illustrate how this low-cost IC can serve as a central element for control and switching applications with opportunities for students to explore electrical experimentation, measurement, and re-design. The activities are appropriate to supplement physical science and algebra courses at the 9th-grade level and beyond.
