Lesson 5 Designing a step counter

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

Pupils will be working at the design level. They will pick out features of a step counter, a piece of technology with which they are likely to be familiar. They will then relate those features to the sensors on a micro:bit. In the main activity, pupils will design the algorithm and program flow for their step counter project.
