Lesson 6 Making a step counter

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

Pupils will use the design that they have created in Lesson 5 to make a micro:bit-based step counter. First they will review their plans, followed by creating their code. Pupils will test and debug their code, using the emulator and then the physical device. To successfully complete this project, Pupils will need to demonstrate their understanding of all the programming lessons they've had so far.
