Lesson 4 Students working with an anemometer with a speed sensor

The table is filled in, but the data is not calculated manually, but using the Arduino controller

Measurement can be carried out with different wind sources:

  • using a hairdryer to create wind
  • you can go outside
  • you can measure the wind speed near the window

Assessment of learning outcomes

Project Presentation Structure

Students create, during lessons in groups of 2 to 4 people, the proposed STEM project “Wind speed analysis using an anemometery”

Structure and protection of the project

The project consists of the following structural elements:

  1. Presentation (authors, problem, idea, method of solution, conclusions, prospects are indicated).
  2. Prototype (created a working prototype of the project during the lessons).
  3. Answering questions during the defense (project presentation skills and understanding of its relevance)

Project Evaluation Criteria

Evaluation criteriaPointsComments

Number of points

The following criteria are distinguished for evaluating project work:

1 point – not implemented;

2 points – implemented partially;

3 points – fully implemented. 

The maximum number of points for the project is 27 points.

It is recommended to transfer the sum of points for work into traditional evaluation norms according to the following scheme:

Rating “5” (excellent) is given for the amount of 22-27 points. Rating “4” (good) corresponds to the sum of 16-21 points.

Grade “3” (satisfactory) corresponds to the sum of points 11-16 points
