In this document, Adrian demonstrates the power unleashed with cheap technology and very powerful free software:
I hope this has given something of the flavour of how scientific and engineering experiments can be easily measured using micro:bit’s on-board sensors, possibly enhanced with other devices. And how powerful free software tools such as Tracker and GeoGebra can used to analyse and model the data mathematically. It is quite amazing that about £15 not only buys you an impressive array of sensors, but also the whole micro:bit with its ARM mBed processor and BlueTooth Low Energy transmission.

A microbit is strapped to Ellie the Elephant!

Data is captured in the Bitty Data Logger and in Excel

Tracker can be used to capture video data

which can be analysed in GeoGebra
