What’s the ideal resistor value for standard LED’s? When is it better to use an Arduino over a Raspberry Pi? What is the best combination of components to make an e-fashion project?
Choosing your own components for the learning process is great when you have time to sort through infinite variety. Even when choices are made, there’s always the risk that different components are incompatible.
CLWB researches and develops optimal combinations of components for attain the best learning outcomes, leaving our customers to focus on learning outcomes.
CLWB has kits available for each of our modules. For example:
In “Electronics”, students learn the fundamentals of digital technologies through building a range of circuits. They progress from Analog to Digital electronic progressing from simple LED traffic lights to switching, logic gates, sound amplification and programming microprocessors.
In “Computer Science”, students learn the fundamentals of computing – hardware, programming and control technology – through building and programming a computer.
They will learn to set up and use a Raspberry Pi and control a range of devices including sensors, motors and displays – and then apply that learning in a range of real-life scenarios.
Building on Electronics, Computer Science and Programming, the Robotics module brings together IT, science, engineering and mathematics in a fun and engaging way.
In this project children will learn how to build and program robots. They learn to program in Arduino C and how to build a mechanical-electrical sub-assembly and combine it with sensing and computing system.
From garments that display Twitter feeds, to biker jackets that show direction, to interactive jewellery, fashion-houses around the world are scrambling to find ways to integrate technology in to the clothes we wear.
The CLWB Wearables module is about enabling children to experience the thrill of designing and making fashion items that incorporate technology, and to gain a practical understanding of what it would take to turn their creations into a business. This project is made up of the following parts –
- Designing, making and programming skills
- Making/production skills
- Business skills
