What You'll Do:
Do you want to create amazing projects that can lead you to comprehend more about electronics, robotics, IA and coding?
Join us on this workshop to learn everything you will need to start making any project you can imagine with Micro:bit, the most popular microcontroller and education platform for students from 6 to 15 years old.
We will build some fun and exciting apps and games that run on the micro:bit exposing the students to its capabilities, built-in sensors, teaching them programming skills, and inspiring them to take coding further.
We will make four projects:
1. Wearable animated badge
2. Funny interactive game.
3. Fitness tracking step counter .
4. Water monitoring device for your plants.
Learn with our Micro:bit Champion coach designated by the Micro:bit Foundation for the 2021 program.
Skill Level:Beginners (no experience working with these technologies is required). Some experience programing a block based language (like scratch) will be helpful.
Skills you will learn:1. Understand how hardware and software work together.
2. Learn about Micro:bit and its onboard sensors.
3. Master the basics of block-based programming.
4. You will be able to figure out what components you will need to make any project you can imagine.
A kit is required for this program:
