Exploring how to control simple circuits to create more functional products

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will explore how we can program a computer to control electrical systems to achieve a more functional product. We will explore how to use the micro:bit to program a simple circuit. We will also explore a range of new components to see how we can make the product react to the environment and be more functional. This lesson includes some physical activity and equipment beyond pen, paper or pencil. Please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
