Super Light Logging


During this project, the students will explore creating a data source and focus on developing their understanding of standardised testing, and modifying environments that might affect the outcomes.

They will create a variable light source that can be automated to increase in brightness at regular intervals. They will also use a light sensor to measure the light levels and how these change over time, including recording and logging the data. The students will also be given the opportunity to explore working with the light in different conditions, and assess how this affects the data that is logged.

The students will:

Hypothesise as to what they expect the results might look like

Design and build a system to increase light levels, and log the results

Investigate the data produced

Present their findings
