GROUP AND CLASS PROJECTS

These are a range of projects that have been developed for use in a modular system in Technology. They are aimed at Key Stage 2 and 3 covering between 12 to 20 hours of curriculum time. All projects have been tried and tested and cover many strands of the National Curriculum for Technology. If you have any projects you would like us to publish, or for any further information please contact us.

All circuits and projects designed by Phil Townshend.

BRAIN GAME PROJECT - NEW!

A neat pocket size version of the famous memory sequence game. Has an on board battery so no fussy wires. This game will go up to 32 notes and keeps the high score even when turned off.

Project time: Approx 12 hours, KS 3-4
Available in our shop.


COLOUR THERMO - NEW!

This accurate thermometer uses colours to display teh temperature from 10-35 degrees. The LED colours make it fast and easy to read. With higher supply, it can function as a temperature mood light.

Project time: Approx 14 hours, KS 3-4.
Available in our shop.


HANDY TIMER PROJECT

A handy timer with no wires, the battery is on board. Has a wide range of applications from cooking to hygene and health. Times in 30 second intervals up to 5 minutes and plays a tune at the end

Project time: Approx 15 hours, KS 3-4.
Available in our shop.


THERMOMETER PROJECT

A thermometer that reads from 8C to 30C in 2 degree steps. The display is 12, 3mm LEDs to indicate the temoperature. If 2 LEDs are on then the temperature is inbetween giving a resolution of 1 degree.

Project time: Approx 16 hours, KS 4.
Available in our shop.


FLASHING ALIEN PROJECT

Designed for delivery at Year 7 as an introduction to electronics. Uses MDF, a PCB and one or two 5mm LED's.

Project time: Approx 16 hours, KS 2-3
Available in our shop.


MOOD LIGHT PROJECT

A project for Year 9 students which ahs has had fantastic success. Lots of good ideas and possibilities. LEDs are very bright amd can illuminate many materials.

Project time: Approx 16 hours, KS 3-4.
Available in our shop.


MUSICAL TOY PROJECT
Delivery at year 7 or 8 utilising basic mechanisms with electronics. Tunes are becoming limited but a very worthwhile project.

Project time: approx. 18 hours.


LIGHT ACTIVATED MUSICAL BOX
This project allows you to write your own tunes using the Music Factory Software also available from this site. It uses PIC12F629, an easily available micro-controller. This circuit can be put into lots of different projects.

You will need facilities for programming PICs.

Project time: approx. 24 hours.


MATHS TUTOR
This is a project designed to run with a small group of students working in pairs. It is quite expensive and intended that the completed projects would be used in school for lower ability maths students. Aim of outcome is to develop multiplication table recall.

Project time: At least 20 hours


FUSE TESTER
A quick project used with students moving from year 6 to year 7 at Summer School..

Project time: 8 -10 hours


TOOTHBRUSH TIMER - page incomplete
Aimed at year 10 as part of the GCSE Electronic Products course but has been tried with year 8 students with much success.

Project time: 18-20 hours


PIC ALARM
Aimed at year 9 and includes vacuum formed cases and constructed PCB's to form a useful alarm which can be used with a variety of sensors

Time: 18-20 hours
