Using control technologies, students are required to individually design, produce and evaluate an alarm/alert system using a coding software (e.g. Arduino) and relevant hardware. The system must include correct coding, working inputs and outputs and include a specified end-use application. Throughout the unit, students will learn programming concepts and commands and how to modify code to suit an identified need. Students will also learn how to assemble basic electronic circuits using a microcontroller to produce their final design idea.
Extension: Students can modify the code to add functionality to their project design which adds complexity to their code.
