Create a flood warning system

Alert homeowners to the risk of flooding with your prototype

Dit is een van een reeks van middelen ter ondersteuning van het gebruik van de BBC micro bit in Design en Technologie lessen.

Flooding is becoming increasingly common in parts of the United Kingdom and causes a lot of damage to peoples' homes. The sooner a potential flood can be detected, the more time homeowners have to prepare and to save their property.

In this unit of learning, learners will identify the design problems presented by flooding. They will then develop a working flood warning system using the BBC micro:bit.

Activiteiten informatie, notities van leraren en curriculum koppelingen

In this activity, learners will develop their programmable system using the BBC micro:bit using a moisture sensor to detect the water level in the system.

Het blad van de activiteit omvat leerkrachten notities, nuttige webkoppelingen en koppelingen (eventueel) naar de nationale curriculum in elk van de vier gedecentraliseerde landen; Engeland, Noord-Ierland, Schotland en Wales.
