Non-GCSE – Lesson 2 – Working with motors
The focus of this lesson is to understand how to use a separate motor controller to get a motor to work. Learners discover why a separate board is needed and what the additional requirements of this are in relation to creating a working prototype. They then connect two DC motors to a motor controller and Raspberry Pi Pico, before experimenting with code to determine correct usage for specific directions and actions, such as forwards, backwards, spinning, and turning.
