by | Oct 22, 2020 | News | 0 comments

In partnership with the City of Whittlesea Council, we are excited to announce a unique opportunity for partner school students of the Whittlesea and Banyule Nillumbik Tech Schools to participate in a virtual after-school program spanning the duration of the 2021 school year.

This multi-level Internet of Things (IoT) Design Course will show students how to build sensors that will make cities both smart and eco-sensitive. The first course module focuses on learning how to use a tiny computer called the Raspberry Pi to display sensor data on a web server that the students build and code at home. In follow-up courses, students will program their own sensor for their backyard and finally help to deploy real-world sensors using The Things Network (TTN) to help solve problems such as flooding, water for River Red Gum tree health, local food production, stormwater pollution and smart rainwater tanks. This course is for anyone interested in computers who wants to use technology to improve Planet A.
