In this live webinar incursion, students will create a compass for marine navigation using the Micro:bit.
This class activity will be lead by stem.T4L leaders. You and your students are invited to attend - just register, receive the link and zoom your way in.
The only requirements are:
A screen/projector where you and your students can see/watch the stem.T4L leader.
Speakers to ensure the students can hear the instructions.
Internet to ensure a continuous connection.
A device to program your Micro:bit.
In this activity, students will use the compass built into the Micro:bit to explore maritime navigation. Students will use Microsoft Makecode to build a program to help them navigate through different ocean environments. This activity will allow students in S2 and S3 to build and consolidate their systems thinking skills and design thinking skills.
