Industrial Technology Electronics years 7-10 (2020 onward): Power Hungry

In this unit students will develop a fundamental understanding of electricity, electrical components and the underlying scientific principles and practices that form the foundation of electronics. Students will take on the role of an electrical engineer and use theoretical principles learned throughout this unit to create circuits beginning with a simple series circuit and eventually using complex components such as an integrated circuit to create a sophisticated battery level indicator. Additionally, students will investigate the function of batteries and the role that batteries could potentially play in a change from non-renewable to renewable power generation.
