A lab project, suitable for individual work or work in teams of two. The students are given the task of designing a circuit that controls lights or lamps that represent different components of a spacecraft. The students must be able to control either individual lamps, or a combination thereof, with a set of switches.
After the circuit has been designed, students are to be given a lab period to build the circuit they designed the previous day. Students will be required to demonstrate the use of a voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter (a guide to their use is included in the last slides.) A marking key is also included, and an automated guide to expected properties is available (but not included.)
