Create a travel information system

Develop a programmable information system for users of the London Underground

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

The London Underground is one of the busiest public transport systems in the world. It is used for over 1.2 billion journeys a year. Passengers need up to date information when using it so that they can plan their journeys well.

In this unit, learners will use the BBC micro:bit to develop a prototype for a programmable information system for users of the London Underground.

Renseignements sur les activités, notes à l'intention des enseignants et liens avec le programme d'études

In this activity, learners will develop their programmable system using the BBC micro:bit.
