Robotics and Product Design NCEA level 3



This is an 'approved' subject for university entrance


Previous success in 12 TRE .

Course Description:

Robotics & Product Design Level 3 will give students the opportunity to further extend their learning to complex level in building, programming and testing their solution based real-life robotics technology. Students will continue to explore coding textual language such as Arduino to control the sensors and other hardware system. They will also continue exploring creating electronic circuits and do complex level software to hardware interface. Their learning in robotics and product design will be engaged and energised through overlapping elements of Technology, Mathematics and Engineering. Some project examples are smart car parks, robotic toys and weather/ environmental monitoring systems. Topics Covered: Understanding of complex machinery; complex programming techniques; use of CNC machines; technological modelling, development and implementation.
