What is Crumble and why do we use it?

The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable micro-controller.  Using the Crumble controller we learn about computational approaches using simple block-based programming.  Using physical components makes the learning more real – seeing something you have wired up and programmed come to life. 
Many machines use microcontrollers and this is a great start to understand how they are used and where they can be embedded e.g. engine control systems, implantable medical devices, remote controls, office machines, appliances, power tools, toys and other embedded systems.


About the Crumble Coding & Engineering Course

  • On this course you will work like an engineer by making something work and make something work better.  In doing so you will also learn about, and use, Engineering Habits of Mind (Royal Academy of Engineering).  You will start to include your microcontroller and components into things you engineer.
  • In this course we use the Crumble to control lights, switches, buzzers and light dependent resistors. In subsequent courses, we will look at how to use the ultrasonic sensor, motors and servos that also came in your package.  You must have completed this course to progress further.
  • Support will be available at pre-determined times via video conference as set times to be notified to learners. Calls will have staff from Skills Supply, the school/college as well as HOP. 
  • To start the course click on the first lesson under Course Content below “Getting Started with Crumble Engineering”.
