Year 7-10 students work towards creating a dexterity game with the use of LEDs, LDRs, potentiometers and an Arduino Uno.

Onsite at Quantum

Students engage in hands-on STEM education to develop 21st Century skills. They will exercise problem-solving skills whilst programming and working with electronic circuits to solve problems related to real-world applications.

A visual programming language; Snap4Arduino is used throughout the day. This program targets students from Year 7 to 10 with no prior programming and electronics knowledge needed.

Online Outreach Module 

This portal module guides students through a basic understanding of electricity, electric/electronic circuits and components and circuit theory. The activities in the module make use of simulated electrical laboratories.

Synchronous Outreach Session

This program is also available as a free synchronous session for Rural Government Schools. 

Students will learn about and create circuits through a series of challenges in a virtual electronics lab environment (Tinkercad Circuits). The students will then be introduced to microcontrollers and use a virtual Arduino microcontroller to logically control their virtual electronic circuits. The outreach is run over two sessions or can be condensed to one 90min session.
