Activity Two Extension

Extra extended activities:

  • Label your bases (1-4) or use whatever teddies and toys you have.  Get the micro:bit to randomly tell you which base to run to.

  • For each of your four bases assign a different score. Get the micro:bit to total your score and display it.

  • Create a new variable called 'high_score'.  Get the micro:bit to update the high score each time you run the beep test.  When start a new session it should display the current high score (make sure you set the high_score variable to 0 to start with).

Coding In Context - Interview with Laura

Extra extended activities:

  • Extend your program so that you can report back small, medium, and large creatures

  • Change the program so that you can select small medium and large creatures by scrolling through using the A and B buttons.  A+B will then record that size creature.

  • Change the code in the mission control micro:bit so that shows the total number of small, medium and large creatures found. This total should update each time the field micro:bit sends an update.

Coding In Context - Interview with Hannah

Extra extended activities:

  • Create a function that is called when the micro:bit tilts.  In this new function, have it collect the direction (as a parameter).

  • Change the output of the micro:bit so that a small dot appears in the middle.  When the micro:bit tilts, get it to show the dot moving to that direction.
