Testing the beep tester

In this activity, learners will test their product against the design criteria and suggest possible improvements.

Vacuum forming your beep tester casing

 

In this activity, learners will use a vacuum former to manufacture a suitable casing for a programmable product. It provides information on vacuum forming, in the context of creating a sports product for a micro:bit.

Golden rules for programmable systems

In this activity, learners will self-assess and plan how to extend their current knowledge of programmable systems.

 

Test and modify the pedestrian crossing system

In this activity, learners will improve and further develop their programmable pedestrian crossing system using the micro:bit.

Create a pedestrian crossing

In this activity, learners will use the micro:bit to develop a prototype for a pedestrian crossing for a local secondary school.

What are programmable systems?

In this activity, learners will self-assess and plan how to extend their current knowledge of programmable systems.

Design a prototype score counter

Using the micro:bit, learners will create a prototype score counter. Learners must ensure the product is accurate, well designed and able to withstand repeated use.

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...
