Level 1 Digital Technology

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Dewhurst

Students will first be exploring the issue of Road Safety and develop a responsive website which includes a quiz based upon Javascript. A practical exploration of algorithms is then undertaken, followed by more in depth application of the Arduino in creating  an autonomous robot which follows on from the previous years work. Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is explored and applied during a range of evaluation activities in preparation for external examination done in examination week. All strands of this course will be continued the following year.
