This course follows on from L2TEL

This course is a University approved, Achievement Standard course in which students use a combination of practical skills and theoretical knowledge gained through L1TEL/L2TEL to design and build more complex projects such as a 3 level Elevator. Digital (written) assessments are submitted as evidence for NCEA. Picaxe programming at a more complex level is a large part of the project through the year at Level 3.

All assessments require students to learn how to:

  • Develop a Complex Electronics Outcome through testing, trailing and use of debugging techniques
  • Project Management of an outcome through the use of planning tools such as Gantt Charts, Journals, analysis of existing technological practice
  • Use the process of iteration
  • Use data and calculations (Ohms Law/Power) to justify component selections
  • Build high quality PCBs (printed circuit boards)
