    Kitronik Lesson in a Box Simple Robotics for Micro:bit

    Manufacturer: Kitronik
    The Lesson in a Box (Simple Robotics) is a complete set of electronics and teaching resources to enable successful cross-curricular lessons with minimal teacher effort. The kit and teaching resources have been tried and tested by real pupils and developed by real teachers to save you time. In developing this box Kitronik wanted it to be affordable, useful and robust enough for teachers to use again and again. The resources cover not only the KS3/KS4 specifications but also personal development by encouraging pupils to view traditional STEM activities as having value across their curriculum.

    All of the teaching resources are set out in a teacher, ‘user-friendly' way, including technicians notes, lesson plans, and workbooks or worksheets. These are supplied as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint formats as well as PDF’s, which can be copied, modified, and printed to suit your own teaching style. There is also a quick start guide to the Lesson in a Box kit that gives an overview of the whole box including: a summary of your new lessons, how to setup your kit, how to use the microbit, code examples and more!

    The robots utilse the BBC microbit and our Klip Motor Driver board designed specifically for this type of activity! It requires no soldering and is all connected by crocodile clips. The advantages of the microbit are that, while being easy to use, it is feature packed and it can be coded with languages that suit every ability level. As has been mentioned, this kit is cross-curricular and has been designed for DT, Computing & Physics.
  • DT- Your robots are all about the design process.
  • Computing- Your robots are all about the robot’s code.
  • Physics – Your robot is all about speed and velocity.
  • Enrichments & Open Days – It's all about experimentation and fun.
