What Happens in the Dark?


This project focuses on designing and creating a flexible logging system using a range of SAM Blocks that will automate the process of recording temperature and light changes over night, so that the relationship between the two can be explored. The system will be set up to take a reading every 15 minutes so the data can be examined and presented in various ways.

The students will:

- Hypothesise as to what they expect the results might look like

- Design and build an automated system that will record temperature and light values

- Investigate the data produced

- Present their findings
