Lesson 4: Creating Experiments with Mission 1 

Goal

Create experiments and test sensors.

Understand how the sensor works, and the limitations of the sensor.

Understand the real-world application in space.

New Information Presented

Check videos on the website on how to connect the sensors.

Application Task

View presentation, preferable in groups or 3 to 4 students (15 mins)

As a group build the Mission 1 experiments, and experiment with the sensors ( 20 mins)

Goal Revisited

One or more groups could correctly assemble and run the associated programme to test the sensor operation. Students can comment on how effective (sensitive) the sensors are.(10 min)
