LED Bracelets Bring on Smiles

//STEM Projects Light Up the Classrooms

There is a lot of new activity with our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program here at Decatur Christian School. Fourth grade teacher, Gay Helgemo, has taken a lead role in selecting various hands-on projects for the students in Kindergarten through fourth grade. One project was a foam bracelet made by the students, with an LED light bulb and a small coin battery built into the wrist band. Students put together their foam bracelets by attaching small, self-sticking shapes to their bracelets. Then, with a bit of extra workmanship, they added a small LED light. They truly loved operating these bracelets with the room lights on, and then we added an extra fun boost to the room by turning off the room lights. These projects all went home with the students.
