Sometimes on a Friday or Saturday, some kid(s) swing by the room and keep me from doing something I am suppose to be doing (like R9). I drag these criminals into lab and give them a lesson (punishment for keeping me from the things I love--R9) on light, or crystals, or robotics, or solar energy, or (you get the idea). After we have learned a little about whatever.....we build or concoct something that has to do with what we have learned (another punishment). This makes learning fun (an unintended by-product). This type of learning format is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). State and Federal Governments should focus on real educational reform....learning should be fun, shouldn't it?
Today, Josh built a solar powered car. Course, it did keep me from the things I love (R9).
