Non-GCSE – Lesson 4 – Going ultrasonic!

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

Lesson 4 starts with an introduction to ultrasonic sound waves. This is then expanded upon to show how robotic devices can make use of sensors that include this technology, to avoid bumping into things. Learners connect an ultrasonic sensor to their buggy, code its functionality, test, and iterate if needed, to refine their implementation.

Learning objectives

  • Understand how ultrasonic sound waves work
  • Combine inputs and outputs to solve a problem
