Lesson 1 Connecting Crumbles

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

In this lesson, learners will become familiar with the Crumble controller, some of its associated components and the programming environment used to control it. They will explore how the items connect together to create a complete circuit and how to construct programs that turn a LED on and off and set its colour. Learners will make use of their understanding of repetition by identifying how their programs can be modified to make a LED flash continuously.
