KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

2 min 26 video showing how we rig the Electronic System of Bloodhound SSC. The electronic systems are are the lifeblood of the car. In a state-of-the-art racing car with three engines, three braking systems and over 500 sensors, the electrical systems are key. Systems Technician Milton explains the wiring loom in the cockpit. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

Using Minecraft to display binary ASCii codes

Using Minecraft to display binary ASCii codes

Who is this for: This is an introductory lesson to get pupils thinking about how computers use binary to store information, then displaying representations of ASCII characters using Minecraft. Pupils will not need to know exactly how binary conversion takes place, this can be covered in later lessons. The focus of this lesson is to understand that data such as text can be represented by 1’s and 0’s. Resources Included: Powerpoint to cover main theme of lesson ASCii Worksheet for pupils to use to convert their name to ASCII and Binary Binary Converter.xlsx to help pupils convert denary to 8 bit binary Review Short 7 question review test I have started recently to use MinecraftEDU in my computer Science lessons as a large proprtion of my Y7 and 8 pupils are very interested in it. Working in an SEND school the use of Minecraft has really helped to engage my pupils and has led to some great learning adventures for them and myself. In lessons I will usually join pupils on the server so that I can assist them and get involved first hand with their learning. This lesson introduces binary in a fun way to get pupils thinking about how data can be represented in a computer, then uses Minecraft to represent binary data. I have extended this lesson sometimes to give pupils the challenge of decoding messages other pupils have set up using minecraft torches. The possibilities are endless! Please share any ideas and Review if you find it useful. Thanks If you would like any help setting up MinecraftEDU or advice please contact me : email: twitter: MrT_CompSci
