CATA Pre-Engineering Students Design Weather Station
Mr. Humphries' PLTW Engineering Design & Development (EDD) students are designing a weather station. This image shows a schematic diagram for this station. The weather station will measure temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and air quality. The weather station will collect the data, wirelessly send it back to a receiver, and then that receiver will interface with a computer to post that information to the Internet.
Mr. Humphries stated, "These are high school kids, and yet the complexity of this project rivals anything being done at the college level. I can’t imagine there’s another high school in the nation with kids working at this level."
