Robotics and Product Design NCEA level 3



This is an 'approved' subject for university entrance


To have completed NCEA Level 2 Technology or Design & Visual Communication or have permission from the Head of Faculty.

Course Description:

Robotics & Product Design Level 3 will give students the opportunity to further extend their learning at complex level in building, programming and testing their solution based on real-life robotics technology. Students will explore coding language such as Arduino to control the sensors and other hardware system and CNC. They will also explore into 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 Computer Science, Mathematics and Engineering.
