Parallax is releasing a series of new lessons designed to add a pre-engineering focus to maker programs. Combining circuit-building, Python scripting, and signal measurement, these lessons support career technology education (CTE) programs in coding, product design, and manufacturing. The barriers to use are low: a micro:bit module and some breadboard-friendly components from Parallax in one convenient kit! These are the learning goals of our workshop:

  • Get set up for programming and measurements with the micro:bit Python editor and Parallax cyberscope.
  • Learn how circuits and scripts are used in common product designs, and how they can be applied to inventions.
  • Learn electricity basics and science and engineering principles as they are applied in new and fun circuit applications.  
  • Learn how to build and test circuits with scripts and measurement equipment. Expand the micro:bit module’s built-in capabilities—display, buttons, radio, temperature, tilt, compass, audio—with circuits the students can build on a breadboard.
  • Apply the concepts with projects in infrared, accelerometers, servo motors and a circuit-based multimeter.
  • Review the student and teaching resources for the program.

This workshop is FULL. Applications are being reviewed, and email approvals/regrets will be sent by June 15th. Attendees will be shipped a hardware kit for free, and must sign up for the Zoom sessions.
