Design a prototype step counter

Utilisez le système programmable Micro:bit de la BBC pour créer un prototype fonctionnel.

This is one of a series of resources to support the use of the BBC micro:bit in Design and Technology lessons.

Walking is an excellent form of exercise that most people can take part in. The average person walks 3000-4000 steps per day. The National Health Service in the UK has set a challenge for each person to walk 10,000 steps per day. This can be counted using a step counter or stepometer.

In this unit of learning, learners will integrate a BBC micro:bit based programmable system into a complete and commercially viable step counter product, that will aid people taking part in this challenge.
