Week 09: Design Technologies and Materials

Class Task and Information

  • Lesson 01:
      • Digital circuits in Tinkercad
      • 7 Segment LED Circuit Structure
      • Coding Arduino to display numbers


    • Task: 7 Segment LED display
      • Tutorial: Tinkercad and Arduino - 7 Segment LED Display
        • Students are to view and complete the tutorial on how to create a 7 segment LED circuit. Once constructed, follow the tutorial on the basic code structure in Arduino to get the LED to display the numbers from 0 through to 9 (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).



      • Take a screen shot of your circuit diagram and place in Share with Teacher (SWT)
      • Place a copy of your code, including all numbers in to SWT.

      • Extension Task:
        • Create letters from the alphabet using the 7 segment display in a separate program (Hint: you can duplicate the project at the menu to save time and construction)



  • Lesson 02:
      • Physical Circuit construction
      • 7 Segment LED Circuit Structure
      • Coding physical Arduino to display numbers


    • Task: 7 Segment LED display
    • Students are to install the Arduino software
        • Unzip the file and place in your application folder
        • Double Click the Arduino file in your application folder
        • Attach the file to your Dock for easy access

    • Task 01:
      • Open your Arduino software
      • Connect the Arduino Board to your laptop
      • Create a simple blinkie circuit as a test


    • Task 02:
      • Construct the 7 Segment LED circuit - Resistors on the cathode
        • Arduino Board
          USB connector
          Breadboard
          7 Segment LED
          2x 220Ohm resistors approx [200 to 200Ohms] (5V, 15 to 18mA)
        • Place the resistors on the Cathodes or Common Power rail)
          14 wires (male to male )




    • Task 03:
      • Code the circuit to display all the numbers 0 to 9


  • Lesson 03:
    • TBA
