Create a portable beep tester
Manufacture the beep tester using the BBC micro:bit
Technology can be used in sports to enhance performance and help participants to improve their fitness and stamina. For example, automated beep tests can be used to monitor fitness levels during training sessions, and set targets for future improvement.
In this unit of learning, learners will use the BBC micro:bit to develop a prototype for an electronic beep test that can be used to help people monitor and improve their fitness levels.
In this activity, learners will use a vacuum former to manufacture a suitable casing and integrate the programmable system into a completed product.
