The new, powerful and compact compressor guarantees a reliable supply of compressed air to the models.
The above shows all the 3 models (pinball machine, colour sorting, obstacle course) controlled by the original fischertechnik TXT controller : Adapt this to be used with micro:bit!! Real fun!
The electro-magnetic valves included allow remote control of the models with a PC.
4 models, 440 parts
For kids 10 or above
There are instructions of building 4 different models in each pack:
In addition to the building blocks, each pack also comes with
To achieve fluency and competency in micro:bit coding, you really need to get a thorough understanding of each of the block catagories to be used in the PinBall Machine Model (see part 2 below for the full code). Fortunately, all the reference guides are available on the BBC micro:bit web site for you to get a deeper and more comprehensive understanding and mastery.
The Pinball Machine Model used the following micro:bit blocks. You can click to lean more about each of the block catagories. The links bring you directly to the respective part of the BBC micro:bit reference document site, where live codes are included for you to understand, try, and download:
The following code has used all the mentioned blocks in Part 1 above.
Comments In English, click the " ? " on block to find out the comment (meaning) of the block code.
In order to have the models running, you must have:
