Microbit Reaction test

Year 6 made a microbit reaction test as part of their electricity topic. Microbits are mini computers that you are able to programme.

First they made the reaction board and put three pieces of tin foil on the bottom of the piece of cardboard and then put a piece of tin foil on the top for the start button.

They made the code for the micro-bit and to play the game you have to complete the electric circuit by touching the middle foil.

A person is able to complete the circuit because humans act as conductors of electricity.

You then have to touch the foil in the quickest time when you see a dot on the screen. The Microbit tells you who was the fastest and what was their time in milliseconds.
