Dr. Rohit Dua doesn’t contain his teaching to college students.
Dua, associate teaching professor of electrical engineering, wants everyone to be educated on electrical engineering. On Sept. 14, he ran the basic parameters measurement laboratory at the cooperative engineering EE laboratory. This was for students at Central High School (CHS).
His son, and many children of professors at Missouri State, are in the Central Scholars Program at CHS. Dr. Xin Miao, professor of geospatial sciences, helped rally the parents to attend the laboratory. Dua and his teaching assistants ran the laboratory.
A different approach
In the past, Dua has paired students together to learn. This time, Dua paired students with their parents. Dua said watching students and parents work together was amazing.
“The most interesting observation was to see kids work with their parent and learn about basic electrical engineering concepts and be successful in understanding the presented material,” Dua said.
Students and parents learned about resistance, voltage and current for different circuit types.
Dua previously taught the lab to GOCAPS students and students at Phelps Center for Gifted Education.
Dua wants anyone who wants this knowledge to have it. He has offered to hold more group sessions if anyone is interested. Contact Dua by email to inquire for opportunities.
