Have you completed the mouldy bread experiment with your students?
Want to take it to the next level with digital technologies and the micro:bit?
Join educators from the T4L Team in this online digital incursion to discover the key factors in making mould grow with the power of digital technologies.
In this digital incursion you and your students will:
define the controlled, independent and dependent variables that influence mouldy bread
explore the influence of these variables including light, temperature and moisture level
build computational thinking and coding skills as students program a virtual or physical micro:bit to measure these key variables
Using this data and information, students will also be challenged to think about
the importance of repeated trials
how to interpret and analyse the data gathered from the micro:bit with the aid of graphs
Note this digital incursion is suitable for both students learning online as well as in the regular classroom. Students do not need a micro:bit and can use the virtual micro:bit to complete the coding and computational thinking components.
To make the most out of this session your students will need:
