New teaching resource using Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT. via raspberry.org
In this resource, students will investigate various concepts from Physics, Chemistry and Biology, using a Raspberry Pi and a Sense HAT.
By following this resource, students will learn:
How to collect reaction times to calculate rates of reactions
How concentration and temperature affect the rate of chemical reaction
That heat can be transfered by hot objects emitting IR radiation
That different materials emit IR radiation at different rates
How to create cooling curves from CSV data
That absorption of IR causes objects to become hot
That different materials absorb different amounts of IR radiation
That the transfer of heat can be stopped by an insulator
That some materials are better at insulating than others
That fermentation is the process of converting sugar and water into alcohol
That the rate of fermentation is dependent on factors such as the temperature of the yeast
That investigations using insects have to be carried out with consideration for the health of the insect
How to plan an investigation to find out what colour habitats are preferred by different insects
How to interpret results from choice chamber experiments
How to measure temperature and humidity data using the Sense HAT
What the products of aerobic respiration are
How humidity and temperature are affected by aerobic respiration
That the stopping distance of a car is affected by both the thinking distance and braking distance
What factors affect both the thinking distance and braking distance
