This resource provides an introduction to using the Crumble microcontroller with a variety of components. It begins by testing connection through programming the onboard motor LED's. Student activity includes coding sparkles, motors, servo motors, light dependent resistors, potentiometers, distance sensors.
Differentiated editable Worksheets that can be used with any Logo interface eg TurtleAcademy, StarLogo, PurpleMash Logo. Worksheet 1 can also be used with Probotix as it doesn't use the ARC command.
For an extra challenge, learners could "translate" the Logo commands into Python Turtle commands.
These resources introduce the topic of PCB manufacture Engineering and Design & Technology. They contains an overview of the different stages of PCB manufacture and a brief explanation of surface mount technology. The question sheet can be used alongside the presentation.
This Product Design project is based on the work of London designer, Paul Cocksedge. Pupils manufacture a stretched Vinyl record, a stand, brand logo and a carry case. The project has been developed further using electronics using the stretched record as a cone surrounding a bluetooth speaker and using LED lighting...

This collection of lesson resources supports students to design and build using VEX IQ kits, whilst learning about VEX IQ parts, programming the controller and key engineering terminology (such as chain drive, friction, gear ratio, motors). The challenges and learning are based on a US STEM curriculum map,...
2 different versions of editable schemes of work, supporting the quick planning of lessons.
I am investigating the potential of the micro:bit as a resource for the teaching of physical computing and science in KS 2 and KS 3. The link below will take you to a website I have set up to publish my experiments and the work of my pupils. The aim is to inform teachers who would also like to develop the use of...
