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....
