How much do you know about programmable systems?

In this activity, learners will recall and extend their understanding of programmable systems.


Design a food temperature probe

Learners will create a prototype food temperature probe using the micro:bit. The product must be able to provide a warning when the food is too cold to eat.

Create a travel information system

This activity, suitable for a cross-STEM project day or series of lessons, focuses on how information can be provided to travellers on the London Underground. Students are asked to consider user needs – what information would they need to see, and how might their requirements be communicated? A deep understanding...

Design a prototype step counter (stepometer)

In this challenge, students are asked to evaluate an existing product – a step counter or pedometer. They then create a step counter to encourage healthier lifestyles among teenagers. It is based on a BBC micro:bit device which includes an accelerometer capable of detecting ‘shake events’. These events are then...

Atomic structure, periodicity and inorganic chemistry: delivery guide for AS and A level chemistry

This booklet contains a range of suggested activities and contexts for teaching about atomic structure, periodicity and inorganic chemistry at A level. Curriculum links include atomic structure, ionisation energy, ...


These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recognise that a catalyst increases the rate of formation of new substances by increasing the rate of a chemical reaction.           
  • Recognise that increasing the surface area of...

World Map Logic Activity

This Barefoot Computing activity for lower primary children uses simple sequences of instructions to explore a world map. They use logical reasoning to predict the outcome of instructions that are 'programmed' into a simple game, made using Scratch 2. Children learn about the continents by guiding a simple robot...

Smart buildings

This resource produced by Siemens introduces the technology used to protect public health in smart buildings. A series of activities allows students to model the spread of bacteria and viruses using glitter on hands and produce a COVID-19 guidance poster how to protect against the spread of this or other viruses....

Scratch art lesson - application of repeat function

Focusing on the programming skill of loops and repetition, this activity offers a chance for pupils to apply their understanding, linking both Scratch and art. With links to modelled examples, teachers could apply the PRIMM method to their lessons, through the pre-created Scratch projects.

RADAAR framework to support digestion

This infographic guide to teaching 11-14 year olds about digestion uses the RADAAR (research, anticipate, diagnose, address, assess, review).  The framework has been developed by the Best Evidence Science Teaching (BEST) project based at the University of York.  It looks at possible student misconceptions and how...
