A pedometer is a device that can count our steps by detecting them. In this lesson we will turn our Microbit into a pedometer and get it to display the amount of steps we've taken.
Microbits have an accelerometer in them that can detect when the Microbit is shaken. We're going to use this to detect a step by placing the Microbits inside the sock of the student so that it can detect the shake of a step. The battery power pack will need to be connected to the Microbit to power it and children should be cautioned to be careful not to step on the Microbits and break them.
