Nick Cook, Newcastle University
In this session we will explore the world light, sound, sliders and resistance sensors using Scratch and the Picoboard. We will show how students can use a Picoboard to build burglar alarms, electronic room capacity monitors, slider controls and data loggers, and gain an understanding of their real-world counterparts.
