Problem solving challenge: using computational thinking and the Internet of Things to improve fire safety

This five hour teaching pack examines how everyday technologies can be connected via the Internet Of Things (IoT) to improve fire safety. 

From the sensors that detect heat and gases; through the connected computers that read and shape data shared through the cloud; to the networked...

Introduction to computational thinking and the Internet of Things

This one-hour lesson examines the design of IoT algorithms, considering how individual devices execute algorithms as code, allowing them to work together. The key aims are to develop computational thinking while raising awareness of the potential for future careers and enterprise.

The lesson starts with the...

Buildings and fire safety

In this one hour activity, students evaluate the types of fire risks in different buildings.  In the context of a team which has been contracted by the local council to improve fire safety, each team picks a building type and produces advice for the council.

Survive a zombie apocalypse

A terrifying virus has been spreading around the world. In a matter of weeks, it has killed 90% of the world’s population. Even worse, the victims don’t stay dead. Now, these zombies are roaming the streets looking for their next meal: your brains! Your challenge is to stay alive until scientists find a cure. Be...

Designing robots for small spaces

Inspired by the Born to Engineer video from Mathew Holloway, this resource uses the Crumble controller, setting students a design challenge that sees them create their own umbilical controlled buggy that can navigate small spaces. Although specific to the Crumble controller, this resource could be used as a design...

A positive human future

This resource was designed by The Economist Educational Foundation to support PA’s Raspberry Pi competition 2020. However, it can also be used by schools that are not taking part in the competition as a great subject to stimulate creative thinking and debate about real world issues, from...
