Interactive Digital Logic Laboratory for K-12 Students (Work in Progress)


The goal of this project is to address and contribute to the ever-growing demand to develop innovative and interactive education modules, catered towards K-12 students, which will encourage them to pursue a career path in computer engineering, a STEM field area, upon graduating from high school. Even though kids are experienced in using consumer electronic gadgets, they rarely understand the basics of how these devices were built. Exposing them to the foundations of computer hardware, may encourage them to think about how basic computer operations are performed. In addition to developing multiple tools, to teach kids about the working of logic gates, decimal-to-binary conversion, and representing positive and negative numbers, in computers, the project strives to make the tools interactive and fun to use. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2017.
