CAD CAM in Textile Manufacturing

This film clip illustrates how computer aided design (CAD) can be used to create a textiles design. Different kinds of stitches and colours can be dragged and dropped onto the design. The shape of the garment can then be created, with the computer automatically calculating the different sizes. It is explained why...

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.

60 seconds on sports technology

In this activity, learners will work in groups to share their knowledge of the use of technology in sport. They will each give a 60 second presentation about the topic to their group.

This resource could be used as a starter activity or as part of an exercise for learners to develop their knowledge of how...

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.

Decade counter circuits

In this resource, learners will investigate a decade counter circuit. They will then compare the operation of this to their programmable counter. 

 

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.
