Body electrical and waves

Body electrical waves graph

Electrical impulses in the body can be observed, measured, and recorded as waves to show that there is a relationship between the circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems. The micro:bit can measure and record these waves, then send them to a to another micro:bit which serves as the data collection device. The data can then be downloaded and anaylzed in a spreadsheet.

Lesson concept

Use the micro:bit to measure impulses from the human body

Watch this short video to see how to use a micro:bit to sense muscle movements in the body.
