Programme 6 – Electronics: Native plant monitoring

Developed by Craig Jefferies, Mt Aspiring College, 2018

This programme focuses on developing an electronics outcome suitable for monitoring the environmental conditions of plants to enable plant health and survival. The programme is intentionally broad to cover a range of practical skills and theory relating to input and output interfaces. It covers the basics of microprocessors and software programming.

Students will: 

  • use an electronic interface to sense environmental conditions and control output devices
  • identify components that make an interface
  • construct input and output interfaces
  • understand the purpose and function of interfaces
  • write code to control a microprocessor.
