Physical Computing

Building Block Studio can help students learn about electronic components and electronic systems. We have two different offerings here:

  • Arduino based (Scratch for younger years and C or Python for older students)
  • BBC Micro:bit (both visual and Python)

For the Arduino system we normally work though a range of discrete components such as resistors, LED’s, Capacitors and show how they operate with the Arduino. We move onto resistive based sensors, such as temperature and light sensors and discuss the process of analog to digital conversion. From here we use a number of other shields and sensors to provide a rounded experience for our students.

We have a number of custom boards that are designed specifically for physical computing that are accessible for all skill levels.
