STREAM Night at Penn London Elementary School

On March 16, 2018, ACE’s Ian Burns, Kati McLaughlin, and Andy Schott volunteered at Penn London Elementary School’s STREAM (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, & Math) night. Hosted by the PTA, this free event included hands-on experiments, demonstrations, and make-and-take stations geared towards students in kindergarten through second grade. ACE brought our custom PLC-5 gaming system to educate students and their families on how control circuits are wired for lights, switches, and buttons; how the switches use binary math for game selection; how the programs are structured; and how mathematics plays a key role in computer game programming. Our thanks to all involved for a great night!
