Make a states of matter experiment that responds to your micro:bit wand or micro:bit’s movement! Via Makecode

Duration

The activity is approx 30-45 min based on familiarity with the coding concepts

Materials

  • Cardboard
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Permanent Markers (Red and Black)
  • 1 micro:bit, battery holder and 2 AAA batteries
  • 4 Crocodile clips

Step 1: Variables.

In order for States of Matter to follow the rules for determining the atmospheric temperature, we need to add variables that will store data. Then we will assign (set) the value of the variables. We want to name the two (2) variables as follows: “atmos_temperature” and “temperature”. Set the value of the variables to 100. Modify your code so that your code looks like this.
