Modelling micro:bit data with the Bitty Data Logger App

The free Bitty Data Logger for Android and Apple devices allows you to capture sensor data from the micro:bit's accelerometers, magnetometers and temperature sensors.  A small file needs to be flashed to the micro:bit to enable bluetooth communication with your mobile device, which will also allow you to calibrate...

Introducing BBC micro:bit to a wider audience

I have recently run a session for retired engineers and computer professional keen to learn about the micro:bit as a very cheap (£15) tool for their own interest and amusement, but also to be able to support colleagues in schools, academies and colleges to make sensible use of them to support cross-curricular STEM...

Controlled Assessments and Sustainability Issues

From Practical Action, this resource is intended to help students to think about how they can include sustainability throughout their tasks, from specifications, through to evaluation by using an eco-design tool.

Carbon Capture and Storage, Floods, CryoSat-2

This podcast from the Planet Earth Online collection and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) looks at how carbon capture and storage works, why it's here to stay, the effect of floodplains on water pollution, and how the thickness of polar ice can be measured from space.

Global Transport: Engineering a Vacuum Tube Train

In this activity, students design and test a model vacuum tube train. They have to decide on how to get a ball to travel through a tube as quickly as possible without the help of gravity. They then look at the forces that would act on a real vacuum tube train.

Using the handout Train forces, students are...
