Arduino Control Systems-Block Coding

What is an Arduino / microcontroller? An Arduino is a microcontroller, which is a computer system on a chip that does a job. It contains an integrated processor, a small amount of memory, and programmable input/output devices, which are used to interact with things connected to the chip. Microcontrollers...

Mini Golf Course Team Design Challenge

Introduction In this project, students will develop more advanced 3D modelling skills and use what they have learned previously, to design a mini golf course with a “theme” of their choice. They will also learn to work in teams with other students, perhaps even from other schools!...

Injection Molding Plastic Parts

Question: How are intricate plastic parts made? Answer: There are many ways to make plastic parts, but the only way to mass-produce quality parts is by injection molding. At first it may seem like this is a simple process, but in fact it is not — designing the case and all the tooling...

Asimov’s Laws of Robotics Getting a Rewrite?

Remember the laws of robotics from the movie I Robot? This was actually a book long before that, remember those? What you might not know is that Isaac Asimov, the famed science fiction writer, wrote science text books as well. No wonder a lot of his fiction is steeped in believable science! Look...
