Self-driving car using Arduino

In this sequence of lessons, students will explore the social, ethical and environmental considerations required in the creation of self-driving cars and design and program a self-driving car.

This learning is linked to the Year 7 Australian Curriculum: Science, Digital Technologies and Design and Technologies learning areas.

The Year 7 lessons and resources provide students with opportunities to learn how to program Arduino, design and explore algorithms, modify programs with user interfaces that involving branching, and iteration. Students will develop their computational thinking skills and deepen their understanding of STEM careers.

The program is designed so that Lessons 1 & 2, are presented by the classroom teacher (all resources provided) and Lessons 3, 4 & 5 are presented by our School presenters who visit the school. There are 5 x 70min lessons for this program, however as mentioned in the Overview the program can be expanded up to 10 Lessons for a full school term.
