Little big futures Design and Technology
What is the Internet of Things (IoT) and how can it help firefighting in the future?
These activities explore how design can improve the equipment that fire fighters use, improving safety for both the general public and the fire fighters themselves.
The single-lesson one-hour activity requires no previous experience of the Internet of things and comes with the introductory material to explore the topic with the class. The extended five-hour activity supports students to explore prototyping their own product, using their own research of fire fighting equipment to develop Internet of Things design ideas and prototypes.
Students can use the 5 hour problem solving challenge to works towards a CREST Discovery award, funded by Cisco.
There is also a competition to enter for the chance to win an IOT kit.
