STEM Bridge

Greetings STEM Students. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend....... As we prepare for week two of STEM camp, think about the field trip to ARINC we will take on Tuesday. Take some time to to become familiar with ARINC Go on-line and do a little research about the company. We will meet several Networking Engineers who will tour us through their 24/7 global data center. I would like you to think of at least two questions to ask focusing on the things we've learned in class. You might want to ask questions about the media, devices, security, ISP, POP, speed, etc.

What questions will you ask? Post some sample questions and share what you have learned about researching ARINC.

STEM Bridge

Welcome STEM students..... Please post your comments to this post on my blog. We have learned so much in such a short time. You are all doing a wonderful job and it's a pleasure to be able to teach you about Computer Networking.

This week, our main focus is learning about ISPs and how we connect to them. We must have a variety of media and devices to be successful when connecting to the Internet. As you think about what we have learned so far, what types of users and organizations connect to the internet through an ISP?

What is the most common media used in today's home to connect to the Internet?

I also introduced you to iEARN and all about telecollaborative projects in the classroom. From the list you viewed, what projects look interesting to you?
