Here is the category where you will find all of the projects I’ve been apart of and created.
Building a circuit take quite a bit of time and effort. A schematic has to be constructed – which is a diagram showing the links between all of the electronics. A prototype should be built and tested, the schematic refined and then finally the PCB […]
We’ve started working on the data logging side of the software, and a working prototype will be complete – of both software and hardware – in time for our YICTE competition entry. We have decided on using C++ and Arduino as the programming languages for the software. […]
A state machine – or Finite state machine (FSM) – is a way to model computations, which is commonly used in programming and logic circuits. In relation to programming, each state is a section of code or a function and each transition is a the method […]
Stages There are 3 stages to our project: Design and Creation Launch Results Creation (July-September) The creation stage consists of the team designing and building each of their parts of the project, as well as collaboration and integration to complete the weather balloon. Each team member […]
Welcome to the G(A)SP project. G(A)SP stands for Gungahlin (Almost) Space Project, and it is being designed a run by Gungahlin College students. Find out more about what the project actually is and what we plan to do.
