Teacher PL: Physical Computing with ThinkerShield (NESA endorsed)

Keen to explore physical computing in your classroom? Perfect for beginners or teachers interested in introducing Arduino to their learners, this NESA endorsed teacher workshop provides an exciting hands-on approach to the creative possibilities of electronics and programming.

Physical computing involves software and hardware interacting to produce effects in the real world, and can be a fantastic platform for PBL, science, technology, art and design projects.

Begin by unpacking physical computing and computational thinking through modelled classroom-ready activities before using ThinkerShield, the Museum’s custom micro-controller, to learn the basics of the Arduino language. In the afternoon explore connections to your own curriculum or class group with help from our Learning Team.
