Introduction

Design and Technology come together as students create a beautiful LED Lamp.

 

Program Overview

This program consists of two, 2 hour workshops.

Session 1: Students will learn how to design in Adobe Illustrator. They will learn basic skills required to cut and engrave into their acrylic sheet. Purposes that they can create for include a desk name plate, a trophy or a sign for home, but really this is only limited by their imagination.

Session 2: Students will return to KIOSC to pick up their laser cut design and now begin to assemble and code their LED strip using Arduino Leonardo. At the end of the session, students can take their coded LED Lights home (additional cost per student).

Please note the following:

  • This program works best if students use their own Adobe accounts. For DET schools this means they will need their schools.vic.edu.au email address already set up prior to arriving at KIOSC for session one.
  • There is an additional cost to the program if students wish to take a light home.
  • The two sessions are best booked a week apart to enable KIOSC to cut their designs in between.
