Arduino based weather station including wind speed and direction. Mechanical parts are 3D – printed.

Additional Info

  • 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.

  • Prerequisite knowledge:

    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:

    Unmotivated students...

  • Included green education (if any):
    • - Solar energy
