The Mahomet-Seymour High School STEM Club provides opportunities for students to participate and lead STEM projects each meeting.
Project lead - Mr. Walmer
This project students worked together to build a resistor circuit to provide maximum light output from an LED while maintaing safe current.
Students were given a quick lesson on Ohms, volts, and amps.
Volts = Amperes x Ohms
Kirchoff’s Law (KVL): Voltage dropped in closed loop is zero, energy conservation.
Current Law (KCL): Current flowing into junction point equals current flowing out, charge conservation.
Students used probe cables, a Protoboard, resistors, LED, battery clips.
