Put your students' coding skills to the test with
this fun activity that asks them to explore user needs, identifying and
understanding them in order to design, build and code an activity
tracker from a micro:bit. Using Scratch, in this lesson students will
design, code and debug a program that will enable the micro:bit to track
their steps. Students will also hear how technology just like what they
create is used by organisations like GSK, both in their business and as
part of clinical trials.
