4.9 飲水機監控系統 Water Dispenser

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students will gain understanding of the positive and negative ways that humans can impact on the environment.  

Students will design and create their own self monitoring water dispensing machine, as one possible solution to the issue of water scarcity

    在本課程中,學生將了解人類可以對環境造成的正面和負面的影響

    學生將設計並創建自己的自我監測SAM水分配器,這是解決水資源短缺問題的一種可能的解決方案。建議將本課分為兩個45分鐘的教學時段。
