My experiences in the STEER program will
impact four of the classes/ programs that I am involved in:
- MESA the Math Engineering Science
Achievement Academy STEER will provide speakers, fieldtrips and hands on
opportunities for my MESA students. If I can get enough student copies of
LabVIEW students will also be exposed to DSP (Digital Signal
Processing) software. Some MESA students who are in our BioMed program
may also end up doing projects using LabVIEW.
- Integrated Science Our curriculum
includes waves, sound and light in relationship to astronomy. At a minimum
LabVIEW can be used to demonstrate the properties of waves in general and
sound waves in particular. The concepts about digital signal processing that
have been acquired can also be incorporated in discussions about space
exploration. If enough LabVIEW software is available students can also have
hands-on expereinces manipulating sound waves.
- Academic Decathlon I will use the
equalizer I constructed to try to improve our team's musical content
knowledge, especially their ear training.
- Science Olympiad My STEER connections
will come in handy when the AHS team prepare for the robotic events in which
I have very little background. CSULA can lend expertise in developing both
the robots and the control systems
