I work at a k-8 school and am currently working on some Arduino projects for after school. One of the kids is excelling very well and built his circuit correctly, and started to help some of the other kids that were going a little slower.
As he helped them after he successfully put his together, he followed the instructions(Arduino starter kit with Arduino UNO rev.3) as they are in the book to help the students.
He said he couldn’t figure out what was wrong with the other students projects because they looked exactly like his. So the class ended and i started to look over the students work to see why they weren’t working.
There’s a lesson here!
That student clearly needs to become the teacher. Reminds me of when Electronics was taught in my High School Science class.
Just involve him as partner in everything you are doing with these devices. He will learn, and you will learn too. Everyone wins!
Try to imagine that we don’t know what a k8 school is, or what book and circuits you’re referring to.
“K-8” implies integrated “primary”-“secondary”. Sounds reasonable, clearly the systems vary by country.
Everybody knows what “The Arduino Book” and “Project three” are.
