Communications and Radar
Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials allow students to investigate circuits using communication as a context. The principles behind radar are also examined. The activities can be used individually or together in a series of sessions.
The activities are:
Using electric circuits to transmit signals
Students design and make electrical circuits to transmit messages to a range of recipients using Morse code.
Design and make a Morse code key
Students are challenged to design and make a Morse code 'key,' the piece of equipment that taps out the message. Making one that functions well is not as easy as it seems. The activity allows students to practice making, testing and refining their design.
Position location and radar
This activity shows students how taking bearings on an object from two or more points will allow its position to be determined.
