STEM Technology Starter Kits Donation
Wayne Baer and Max Baer (BHS '17), present Karuna Parmar (BHS-PLTW, CAD Drafting Teacher) STEM Technology Starter Kits.
The Foundation would like to thank Wayne and Max Baer for their generous donation of STEM Technology Starter Kits to the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program at Barrington High School. The objective is to help students quickly climb the product-prototype learning curve with these technology kits. Final group projects ranged from last-minute thinking to elegant simplicity. The learning curve between the groups was the initiative for this donation. The five kits cover a broad spectrum - from basic (materials, fasteners, adhesives) to advanced (Microcontrollers [e.g. Ardunio, Raspberry], sensors, & accessory electronics). These kits will promote better hands-on learning, quicker prototyping, and ultimately student knowledge in STEM.
