Science - Little Big Futures

twitter comp sci 640wOur Lower 4Ys took part in a lesson for the Little Big Futures programme, run by STEM Learning and Cisco. They learned how fire alarms were made using a special piece of metal called a bimetallic strip, then built their own alarm circuit.

To enter the competition, we tweeted a photo of the lesson on the St George's Science account, and were lucky enough to win an 'Internet of things' explorer kit for the school, including a Raspberry Pi Zero and lots of equipment and sensors.
