I’m Hershal Patel. I’m a junior majoring
in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Material Science. I go with a group of students every Friday we teach a science lesson to a bunch of
high schoolers and these lessons are designed to be hands on so that way they can actually
see the effects of whatever they were learning.
I think it’s a lot more fun because you actually get a mess around with it
yourself; the teacher’s not just talking at you the teacher’s sitting down with you and saying ‘hey why don’t you try this?’ The most fun for me was the Snap Circuits and was fun for me to try and figure out,
rather than giving them a differential equation for what a capacitor does, I have to
explain it; I have to explain it more intuitively what a capacitor does and that forces me to understand it better too.
