The Electronics programme for Years 12 and 13 uses courseware designed and produced by the Electrotechnology Industry Training Organisation, which provides credits towards university recognised qualifications. This approach is both experimental and theoretical, with a series of stimulating projects being completed by the students. The courses cover such topics as electronic circuit theory, circuit design, component theory, logic gates and radio theory.
It is also the logical pathway for students involved in our Robotics programme to enter.
In this course, students will learn how to manipulate machinery and use electronic sensors to interact with our environment, to make mechanisms which make our lives easier.
· Students will look at how components can change the output of an electronic circuit.
· Students will build and program a printed circuit which will control the temperature and light levels in a greenhouse.
· Students will also construct and program a VEX robot to independently achieve a mission of our choosing.
