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 Tornado in a Beaker

Simulate the red spot on Jupiter with this experiment.

Fire a Stomp Rocket

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


Create a Glowing Star Constellation

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