Year 12 Students Showcase STEM Themed Projects #makereducation

Thanks so much to educator Daniel Ricardo for sharing two awesome project videos his students completed last year. The students did a wonderful job of creating and explaining their work.

Daniel writes:

Here are a couple of the projects some of my kids did last year with a combination of Adafruit gear and gear we purchased from a local electronics store. We have been using your tutorial site and libraries for a while now. The students in the video were part of my year 11 IPT class (computer science class) and completed their projects as part of a startup technology award. They are 15-16 years old and are finishing their final high school year this year (year 12). They are big fans of your gear and your site and regularly jump on to see what cool projects they can tinker with.

Check out the House of Tomorrow Project video and description below.

Unpacking the House of Tomorrow today. Our solution presents the high tech house of the future that is both safe and convenient, a house that empowers its residents through the use of any mobile internet device delivering maximum comfort, accessibility and security. Keyless access, convenient power and lighting solutions, mobile SMS alert system and being able to track and control real time temperature and humidity readings are just some of the features that are showcased within our 3D printed future house.

We have listened to what people want and explored, flearnt and tested a range of different technologies, modifying some existing technologies and integrating them together to deliver a complete home automation solution. We are excited about our range of products and we hope you are too, we are making tomorrow’s house available today.
