Use an affordable tool and add on sensors to teach digital technologies and design in a real world STEM context.

Teachers will use Scienceworks exhibits as inspiration for a mini design sprint. Get a brief insight into the design and programming behind some of the most interactive exhibits. Teachers will have the opportunity to create something that can sense and do with BBC Micro:bit and add-ons. Some prior experience with block coding or electronic hardware is helpful but not a prerequisite.
