Question Title

* 4. What year are your students? Please select all that apply.

Question Title

* 5. Please rate how useful this workshop was in helping you address the following learning areas in the Common Core Standards to your students:

  Not at all A Little Mostly Very
Common Core Reading 3. Students follow multiple steps in the fabrication of the carbon electrodes assembly of the charging circuit.
Common Core Reading 4. Students were introduced to symbols commonly used in circuit diagrams as well as symbols commonly used in describing capacitors.
Common Core Reading 7. Quantitative data analysis along with hands-on interaction allow the students to learn more about energy storage.
Common Core Reading 8. Students hypothesize and test their ideas on how supercapacitors operate and on the means to manipulate the electrical current from the devices.
Common Core Writing 1. Students determine the operating conditions of several light emitting diodes (LEDs) and be required to give reasoning based on empirical data gathered during the experiment.
Common Core Writing 7. Students answer practical questions stimulated by completing the experiment, e.g. how can a flashlight be constructed to deliver light for a longer time or a more intense output?
