Carrying out this project with the PBL (Project Based Learning) method, requires parallel work groups of pupils to solve individual problems, for which students do not possess all the necessary skills but acquire them through research (PBL method, Problem Based Learning). The composition of the solutions leads to the desired result, which is intended to be attractive as a subject and to raise student’s self-confidence. The subject is the research of a proper placement and orientation of the light sensors with the mathematical prediction and the corresponding experimentation. The technical design and implementation of the mechanical parts follows, so that the system can use the data and turn to the target. The programming of the arduino microcontroller will run the system. At the same time, the artistic support of the project achieves a better presentation of the result.
