Silicon has redefined how we live our day to day lives. Metalloids like silicon have properties of both metals and nonmetals; most importantly, they can act as both conductors and insulators of electricity. These semi-conductors are valuable for electronics, in which we need to regulate the pulses of electricity through a transistor to become a 0 or 1. Places like Silicon Valley (San Jose/San Francisco) and Silicon Beach (Santa Monica) would not exist without this valuable element.

Without silicon, we wouldn't have this website to begin with. It has allowed us to communicate with people across the world, instantly. Embed the collaborative class quickwrite (Google Sheets) for your class in this box for credit.
