PIPER MAKE EDUCATOR RESOURCES SERIES
CHECK OUT THE BUILD:
- Complete your first circuit by touching two wires together and then build a tactile button circuit to complete the circuit by pressing the button.
- Code your first loop to report the running status of the circuit in the console.
- Make connections to the buttons you use on a daily basis (including the keyboard buttons on your computer, the buttons on a vending machine, etc.)
You can share the mission directly to your Google Classroom after logging into your Google educator account in the top right corner of Piper Make.
Useful vocabulary terms to use in classroom: sensing, temperature, conditional statements
Temperature sensor not detecting changes in temperature?
Ensure that you've plugged the wires into the right GPIO (take a look at the Digital View to see which pin you're affecting)
Use simple changes in temperature (side of cup of hot water or ice water). Ensure you DO NOT place the temperature sensor in liquid!
How does the temperature sensor detect changes in temperature?
Temperature snsors are composed of two metals that generate an electrical voltage or resistance when a temperature change occurs by measuring the voltage across the diode terminals.
In this lesson, students will connect the Piper Make Temperature Sensor.
