Coding is becoming an essential basic skill—just like reading, writing, and mathematics—for a student to thrive in the 21st century digital age. Whether she’s interested in science or arts, loves animals or sports, coding can help her pursue her interests now and open up countless opportunities in her future.
Physical computing involves building interactive physical
systems with the use of software and hardware that can sense and respond to the
world around us. Examples include
interactive arts, sensor-based plantings, musical instruments, and DIY robots.

In this program, students learn about coding and embedded system by completing a series of projects that expose them to various science phenomena such as science of colour, electrical conductivity, human heartbeat and lever system. They experiment with various sensors (e.g. ultrasonic, tilt and LDR) and actuators (e.g. servo motor, speaker and LED).
The embedded system used is Arduino and the programming language is mBlock, a variant of Scratch
