Presented by: Sanjin Dedić
Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours
Research and innovation are driven by questions!
The entire reason scientists and engineers go to work every day is to discover and build something new. Something that cannot be bought off the shelf or looked up on Google. This workshop is all about setting up this type of investigation into the unknown with your students. You will learn how to build and program the technology which records valuable data and how to interpret that data and yield trends and insights. The workshop will cover two case studies involving finding new facts about human reflexes and reaction times. The workshop will also show you how to set up investigations in the following topics:
- Plant care (sensor inputs: light intensity, temperature, air humidity and soil humidity)
- Impact and forces in sports (sensor inputs: gyroscopes and accelerometers)
- Human Responses (skin conductivity and heartbeat)
