Advanced Project Ideas

Start doing projects on your own with your myDAQ. Get started with a few ideas here. Now that students are comfortable acquiring and outputting data with a myDAQ and processing this data with DAQExpress, students are challenged to complete five open ended projects. Five prompts are given for creating an: audio modulator, crowd noise meter, heart rate monitor, combination lock, and piano keys. Students are not given explicit instructions on how to complete each of these, and so though they build on the skills developed earlier, these are more challenging than previous projects.
