L2 Electronics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

An approved domain course, which involves students establishing an idea for a product, and the creation of a solution involving the application of technology. Students will initially be taught basic to intermediate electronics theory, practical construction techniques and programming skills while designing and constructing a number of small electronic projects. 

They will then research, design and construct a parking garage control system based on microcontroller technology. Students will then design and build a prototype project of their own choice. Students will also be expected to design and produce a suitable enclosure to house their projects. There is a clear focus on carefully planning a well designed and constructed project.

This course will be assessed to a selection of L2 Technology Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 24 credits at L2.


Course Costs

Cost for course materials that will be consumed or taken home. (e.g.: Solder, copper tape, small components, wire, PCB material and PCB etchant). NB: For students who design larger, or more complex projects, the school fee may not cover the total cost of their materials. Any students in this situation will be invoiced later in the year on a case by case basis. $130

Required Prior Learning

Either completion of Year 11 Science (12 credits minimum) and/or at the discretion of HOD Technology.
