This 'unplugged' activity by Barefoot Computing, introduces pattern recognition and the idea that algorithms can be repurposed. Cooking recipes are analysed to find parts that are common to more than one. Reusable parts are then borrowed to create new recipes which the children share with the class. Additional...
These activities offer one-page exercises to incorporate the VEX GO kit and STEM concepts in a cross curricular way. From animal habitats, to architecture, compasses to music, these activities offer great cross curricular STEM opportunities for physical computing.
VEX 123 STEM Labs activities offer ways to link physical computing and robotics to STEM and computing. These one-page exercises are designed to be easy to follow, for independent application for pupils. Each activity is designed around a ‘Play’ based concept to apply the computer science skills and concepts pupils...
This Royal Academy of Engineering resource teaches students coding through a series of physical computing and practical activities that explore the essential role engineers have in supporting the emergency services and search and rescue missions.
Combining plugged activities, using a Crumble Controller, and...
The Royal Academy of Engineering explores cyber control through this activity pack, looking at networks of connected devices. It covers:
