Curriculum for interdisciplinary collaboration according to the new Norwegian curriculum reform LK20 and the subjects of Art and Craft, Natural Science, Mathematics, Programming or Coding, Norwegian, and English.
Hover:bit is a fast and flexible hovercraft for the micro:bit. The sustainable design uses recycled cardboard, and students will design their own unique variant.
Suitable for: 6th - 10th grade
Number of hours: 6 - 18
We all have different interests, some like design and art, while others like science and mathematics. We learn best when we work with what we are interested in. A great way to get students engaged is to let them work with what they find fun. Interdisciplinary projects give students the opportunity to work with different subjects, even if they were initially interested in something else. The students will have a better understanding of all areas of the project. They will also have a better chance of mastering subjects that were previously challenging.
Elevene vil de ha en bedre forståelse for alle områdene i prosjektet. De vil også ha en bedre sjanse til å mestre fag som tidligere var utfordrende.
Here is a list of possible tasks
Hover:bit is a STEAM-based building kit that combines practical skills, science, and coding.
Powerful drone motors fill a cushion with air that pushes the hovercraft forward at up to 30 km/h.
Hover:bit is controlled and programmed by BBC micro:bit, a small computer made for use in education. Read more in the link below.
The interdisciplinary project can combine the subjects: Mathematics, Art and Craft, Natural Science, Geography, History, Norwegian, and English.
The project is in line with best practice in the latest educational curriculum in Norway.
Number of hours: 6 - 18
In this project, students will study and explore the hovercraft, Hover:bit. A frictionless vehicle with a stable construction.
The students will:
In the link below, you can find the resources your school needs to carry out a similar program.
We know how important it is to feel confident in the teaching materials and methods you will use in your teaching. Therefore, we offer to conduct courses and competence development for teachers.
You will gain competence in using micro:bit, programming (makecode), electronics, using a 3d printer, laser cutter, and vinyl cutter. In addition to competence in troubleshooting.
Getting help for the first implementation can be an important factor. This is something we have good experience with. Therefore, something we at MakeKit can assist with.
Our contribution can be agreed upon with the school leadership.
