For: Year 10
In this program students develop soldering and assembly skills while constructing two interactive electronic games.
This program covers an introduction to electronics components and their function. The students practise soldering and assembly techniques whilst developing their ability to identify and understand the function of the electronic circuitry components. In addition to the program there is an opportunity to discuss career options which focus on Electrical, Electronic or Mechatronic Engineering.
What will students do?
Students will make an interactive electronic game called Penguin Pong, which allows 2 players to compete in an electronic game of ping pong. The second electronics board is a musical keyboard with an octave of capacitive touch keys. The board doubles as a Simon Says game where the player will copy a pattern of flashing lights to play an identical tune.
- As this program is a practical activity, students and accompanying adults will be required to wear closed in shoes and appropriate dress.
- Long hair will need to be tied back.
- Teachers will receive confirmation of booking and pre visit information.
- The session runs from 9:30am to 2:30pm
