Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Science Magic Box - From sensor to actuator

The students will learn how to program for a self-built hardware-software enviroment (based on Arduino) and for a ready-to-use pocket computer (TI-Nspire CX CAS calculator with its extension, the TI-Innovator Hub). Both are used as devices for sensor data collection, conversion and transduction to easily handle, read, convert and actuate physical quantities.

The teaching unit is taken from the brochure Coding in STEM Education from the topic ‘Fundamental Science in 1’s and 0’s’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge via mail ( or downloaded. The project was proudly supported by SAP.

Authors: Luc Ivarra (BE), Marco Nicolini (BE/IT)
