Getting to grips with using the Crumble Controller in key stage 3 design and technology TY237
Learn how the Crumble controller can be used in design and technology to create electronic products at key stage 3.
The Crumble Controller is a programmable board that can be quickly used to create programmable design and technology projects. The Crumble is controlled by easy to assemble blocks of code that combine to create programs downloaded straight to the Crumble device. The software used to write the code is free, downloaded here.
No previous experience necessary, get two days of hands-on tuition, getting you up to speed with programming the device, connecting electrical components and planning projects for key stage 3.
You will learn how to use the free Crumble software to make lights change colour and use sensors and switches to control the device. You will also use motors to introduce movement with the potential to create roving buggies in the classroom.
All materials and components for you to use during the day will be available for you to take away, allowing you to continue to develop your own projects back in school.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
You will be able to:
- gain hands-on experience in programming the Crumble with the free to download Crumble software
- explore the use of lights, sensors, buzzers and switches to create programmable projects for key stage 3 and 4
- learn how to connect motors and create your own Crumble buggy
