Robot head templates for micro:bit

Bring physical computing to life, whilst introducing the micro:bit to pupils, with these robotic head templates. Program sequenced animations on the micro:bit and then use the templates to display the micro:bit through a robotic form.  A template is provided for printing on paper or card, as well as files for 3D...

Making story books interactive with physical computing

Combine Makey Makey and Scratch in this storybook programming activity. These resources show pupils how to make a simple four-page story book, with buttons to press for sounds, coded through Scratch.

RAF Code Commanders - cosmic launch project

This activity is a space-themed coding project for learners, combining six to ten hours of STEM linked learning. These lessons use Scratch game creation to explore space and interplanetary missions.

Lesson 2 - Creating and debugging algorithms

In this activity children create an algorithm or a sequence of instructions. They test and debug their algorithms and refine them to improve how well they work. Working together they play a game, instructing the ExoMars rover, Rosalind Franklin, to reach the drilling station, avoiding crashing into other rovers....

Weather and climate change activities

This resource provides teachers notes on a Climate Change themed transition day for children in their last term in primary school. There are six activities, which support children in understanding the difference between weather and climate, identifying temperature trends over time, making connections with their...

The water cycle

In this set of activities, children will learn about the water cycle and, in particular, how water in the soil contributes to the cycle and responds to changes in it.

Activities are:

  • learning about the story of a snowflake to illustrate the water cycle
  • investigating evaporation and...

The discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole

In this set of activities, pupils will learn about ozone and the impacts – good and bad – it has on life on Earth.

Activities are:

  • finding out about ozone and how it is measured and introducing the story of the Antarctic ozone hole
  • investigating the effectiveness of sunscreen
  • ...

The prospects for life on small islands

In this set of activities children learn about the causes and potential impacts of sea-level rise while developing working scientifically. They use data from satellites which observe the Earth and collect information as the basis of evidence for this.

Activities are:

  • reading a story about how...

Lesson 4 - Communicating images

In this activity children explore how images are stored and communicated by computers (including robots and rovers). They learn how a picture is made up of pixels and how each pixel is coded for by a number code, which is then converted into an image. Children learn about Binary code and how it is used to represent...

Lesson 3 - Flow charts and decisions

In this activity children use and create flow charts and are introduced to the idea of loops to repeat instructions. The activity uses the context of Mars exploration, with children using their instructions to help guide the ExoMars rover across the surface of Mars.

This activity has been provided by ESERO-...
