DT: Electric Car Racing Participant Brief
Thank you for registering your child for this Design Thinking via Racing programme.
This program is a series of progressive hands-on lessons that reinforce the learning of Design Thinking and STEM both in the classroom and outdoors. The incorporation of Microcontrollers in the setup and management of a monitored race track gives students a unique opportunity to see, imagine, develop and improve their own creation.
Important Mandatory Items:
- Clear plastic compartment box to contain small parts (potential future upgrade parts)
- Toolbox to contain completed kit and accessories. Handy for the child to have everything in a neat box.
- Custom labels to mark their vehicles
Optional items for the programme:
AA Sized Batteries: Participants will need 4 New AA sized batteries to power the electric car kit. However, it would be prudent to bring extra batteries as spare.
Windows Notebook Or iPhone / Andriod Mobile Device (With Bluetooth capability): Participants will be exposed to block coding and the BBC Microbit Microcontroller ( https://microbit.org/teach/) in week 3, 4 & 5.
Screw Driver: For screwing and unscrewing (inserting and removing) screws, participants will need screw drivers
Clippers: Participants will need to bring clippers of any type for cutting out the unwanted elements from the car parts.
