Development of STEM Educational Material for Semiconductor Engineering
We tried to create a STEM educational materials by organizing the National Institute of Technology (KOSEN) education which is subdivided into each subject. As an experimental practice to elucidate the physical characteristics of Silicon used for Zener diodes, we estimated various physical quantities from the measurement of voltage-current characteristics without using a special device. From the slope, the energy gap of the Silicon was estimated to be about 1 eV.We applied this educational material to overseas college students and other KOSEN college students and confirmed its educational effect. The educational environment of KOSEN is suitable for STEM educational material preparation.
