myDAQ Projects for Engineering Students

Wiring diagram for the Strongman Game project using a piezoelectric force sensor
myDAQ Projects for Engineering Students teaches introductory engineering concepts through engaging DAQExpress workbooks exploring data acquisition, transducer interfacing, and programming fundamentals. These projects become increasingly open ended as student’s skill level progresses, allowing them to flex their engineering design muscles. Projects start out automatically opening Measurement Panels for the students and interactively demonstrate how to navigate DAQExpress, teaching not only concepts but also programming for data acquisition. More advanced projects instruct students to program for themselves, culminating with the final project which invites students to find their own creative solutions to a number of open ended problems.
