This cross-curricular resource for primary schools looks at reaction-time for astronauts and distances travelled by the International Space Station in that time.
Children learn about the body and how nerves allow us to respond to events. They develop systems for measuring reaction times using everyday equipment and then move into simple computer programming to create a similar system. They sequence an algorithm used for timing and can remix an existing Scratch program or make their own.
This resource supports the Astro-Pi competition.
