In this activity, students explore how programmable systems will develop in the future. Students are required to be able to recognise user needs that could be met by a programmable system and to use an annotated sketch to design a programmable system that will meet a specific user need.
As technology progresses, programmable systems are being increasingly utilised at home and in industry. What will the programmable systems of the future be like and how will we use them? In this activity, students apply what they have learnt about the uses and designs of programmable systems to invent their own to meet a specific user need. This activity looks to the future and asks students to use what they have learnt so far about programmable systems to design their own that meets a user need.
The teacher notes provide a comprehensive and clear guide as to how the resources are to be delivered.
