Scratch in Science: Creating Experiments and Making Sense of the Data

Presenter(s): Steve Holmes (IE)

Summary: We will explore the learning opportunities available through connecting sensors to Scratch. The Make!Sense analog sensor board and Wii Remote/Balance board will be used to give lessons about real time data streaming and data collection/analysis. Scratch’s easy programming environment allows primary and secondary students with no programming experience to write code to collect and analyse data.

Type of participation: Workshop
