Grant Supports Student Project

In June, the chapter saw firsthand the impact of one of its grants. General Belgrano, a military high school in Santa Fe, Argentina, receiving a Science Teaching Tools Award for a project on “boards using knowledge of electrical physics.” The project focuses on teaching students about electrical physics; using circuits in the laboratory; and developing a teaching strategy for learning theoretical concepts and their application in practical cases. Approximately 90 cadets were involved in this project. Several professors, Omar Difilippo, Jose Gonzalez and Silvina Chemes along with Lucia Fernandez, assistant professor of practical, were responsible for the materialization of the project. They purchased all necessary materials, and students prepared boards, installed a safety switch and performed appropriate signage. Cadets cut wires, made connections, and practiced welding and drilling with the tools.
