Measure Gravity Using the micro:bit


Conduct Space Experiments

Astronauts, rovers and space vehicles must constantly monitor their environments to function in space. Additionally, they conduct experiments on space bodies. We will use the micro:bit to carry out the following experiments in the classroom:

  • Measure the temperature of the room
  • Measure the light level in the room
  • Test for water in a soil sample

Create a Glowing Star Constellation

Learn how stars are formed and create the Hercules star constellation.


Fire a Stomp Rocket

Launch a soft rocket 100-200ft into the air to learn about thrust (can fire it safely indoors).


Tornado in a Beaker

We will show the students a tornado/whirpool in a beaker just like the red spot on Jupiter.
