Strategic Network for Sensor Research

at Cambridge University

Ever wondered how modern sensors work? Build your own sensor from scratch and learn about the basic electronics and software behind everyday sensors.

This 30minute introduction to the use of microcontrollers and sensors is aimed at teenagers and older who have no or very little experience with programming and electronics.

We will build a basic temperature sensor with optical indicators.

Have a look at this video.
