In these activities, learners will look at the requirements for a good home security system and develop their own programmable alarm system.

 

A series of STEM projects, bridging design and technology and computing, which make use of the BBC micro:bit microcontroller device.

Digital Design

The Cre8ate maths project has provided a set of materials to support the teaching of mathematics in the context of digital design. The resources include Designing Logos, Maths in Art, Programming and Working with Photos, which will involve students in a variety of activities, allowing them to apply their...

These six lessons and activities introduce students to digital literacy and how to keep safe online. This includes two sessions of personal information and authorised access, creating secure passwords, illegal downloading and file sharing, possible e-safety scenarios and looking at a social media profile to...

This unit provides important links between programming and external hardware through physical computing using the BBC micro:bit.

In the first half of the unit, students will learn about the components built into the micro:bit  and write simple programs that use these components to interact with the physical...

In this unit students will learn how professionals create 3D animations using the industry-standard software package, Blender.  Films, television, computer games, advertising, and architecture have been revolutionised by computer-based 3D modelling and animation.  By completing this unit learners will gain a better...

Data Science

This unit introduces students to the powerful and topical discipline of Data Science. By the end of the unit they will know how to use data to investigate problems and make changes to the world around them. Students will interact with both global and local data sets and gain an understanding of how visualising data...

This unit gives students the opportunity to design graphics using vector graphic editing software. The lessons are tailored to Inkscape (inkscape.org), which is open source and cross-platform, but the resources are readily adaptable to any vector graphics editor.

Vector graphics can be used to design...

Computing Systems

This unit takes students on a tour through the different layers of computing systems: from programs and the operating system, through the physical components that store and execute these programs, to the fundamental binary building blocks of which these components are made. 

...

This unit introduces students to the technologies that make up the internet and the World Wide Web. It starts with an exploration of the building blocks of the World Wide Web, HTML, and CSS, and students investigate how websites are catalogued and organised for effective retrieval using search engines. Students...
