Prerequisite: TH 101 - Introduction to Engineering & Computer science
Includes four projects to learn about Climate Science, Meteorology, and Technology by building your own Weather Station to remotely monitor the weather (temperature, humidity, pressure, UV-index, ambient light, and rainfall).
Use sensors to measure and analyze the fundamental units of weather
Included: Temperature, humidity, pressure, UV-index and ambient light sensors, LED Bar graph
Upload your weather data to a database of other weather stations. View your weather data remotely and from any internet connected device.
Included: WiFi module, RGB LEDs
Construct a tilt-bucket rain gauge. When it starts raining, water is funneled into the bucket. It fills up one side of the seesaw-like actuator - causing the actuator to tip and trigger a magnetic switch.
Included: Magnetic Reed switch, Bucket rain gauge
Construct a wireless indoor base station to instantly monitor conditions. Assemble an enclosure to keep sensors protected from the elements. A propeller latch on the bottom lets you have access the whole project without disassembling it.
Included: Acrylic enclosure, Arduino, WiFi Module
