Arduino based weather station including wind speed and direction. Mechanical parts are 3D – printed.
- Period of implementation: 80-120 Hours
- Country where the practice was developed : Finland
- Provider of the practice : Salpaus Further Education - Lathi
- Targetg group: EQF level 5
How to implement the practice :
At first every student plan their own 3D models using TinkerCad or SolidWorks and print the parts using 3D printers and PLA filament. At next every student plan their own PCB:s using Eagle Layout Editor, make PCB and solder the components (HALL-sensor etc) to PCB.
At last everys student program Arduino to show wind speed and direction via LCD/OLED/SerialMonitor.
Some 3D modelling program, 3D printing, PCB planning and electronic basis
Main learning outcomes from the practice :
- - 3D modelling and printing
- - PCB planning and manufacturing
- - Electronics
- - HALL-sensor
- - Magnetism
Needed/Suggested digital tools:
- - Arduino cc
- - 3D modelling program (TinkerCad)
- - PCB Layout Editor (Eagle)
- The practice was carried: : Hybrid online/classroom
Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
Ensuring access to the boxes, tools and parts to be used.
Positive aspects of participatory learning :
Motivated students can make their best and more
Negative aspects of participatory learning:
Included green education (if any):
- - Solar energy
