L1 Electronics

L1ELEC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

Required Prior Learning

Passing grades in Year 10 Mathematics are essential. Course entry is at the discretion of HOD Technology.


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 electronics theory, practical construction techniques and programming skills while designing and constructing two electronic projects. They will design and build an autonomous robot based on microcontroller technology. Students will then design and build a prototype project of their own choice. There is a clear focus on carefully planning a well designed and constructed project.

This course will be assessed to a selection of L1 Technology Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 26 credits at L1.
