The Physbit for the BBC microbit is a system to enable simple fundamentals of programming and electronics to be taught to Students from a young age.
Developed in co-operation with SSERC (Scottish Schools Education Research Centre) the Physbit addresses the issue of the classroom management of all the wires and tiny components usually associated with teaching embedded computing.
The Physbit has interchangeable modules which simply plug in and out, allowing you to teach many different principals with one set of hardware.
In each keenly priced kit, you will receive:
• the PHYS:BIT main board
• a 5 resistor divider board
• a universal board for mounting two of your own components.
The micro:bit can be used to measure the voltage at any of the test points on the daughter boards. The universal board could be used to show the voltage change on a charging capacitor, or the voltage potential created using 2 different resistor values.
A simpler experiment could be to light up an led when a test point is touched.
The boards are fully assembled, and are ready to go, all you have to do is add a micro:bit, and code.
