Original Author:  David Watson Content Teaser Engineer a better building envelope Resource added here as Mico House evauation can be completed using Scratch for Arduino sensor input for temperature.

Start with the basic premise that there is no such thing (in a Science sense) as ‘cold’. Heat or the absence of heat provides the continuum (hot to cold). To better design homes, we need to minimize heat loss in ‘cooler months’ and heat gain in ‘hotter months. Resource Files Other Files:  micro_house_project.doc Featured:  Not-Featured

Expand the Scratch Environment to the Microcontroller

29 november 2016 19:12
Original Author:  David Watson Content Teaser Computational thinking solidifies the thread to the outside world: Mathematics IN Science IN Technology.  Push the boundary past the sequence design of screen output. Bloom's notions of higher-ordered- thinking will be laterally developed when learners use processing capacity to affect input and output directly in their environment and beyond the restrictive visual interaction on a computer's screen. In the lessons found within the attached file,  a student can take an introductory step into real-world computing by connecting their programming efforts to a simple microcontroller attached via a USB cable.
