Grades 5 and up
Meet the Micro:Bit microprocessor! Specially designed by the BBC and Microsoft for youth to learn coding. This amazing little microprocessor can be coded easily and added to projects and robotics. In this class we will code the micro:bit and add it to a Gigglebot robot! The Gigglebot is a great way for children to learn coding. We'll talk about inputs and outputs, coding sensors and introduce the basics of coding using loops and conditionals.
Minimum age for this class is 10.
Computers will be provided. Participants will have a coding buddy if the class is full. (two per computer) Studies indicate this is an excellent way to learn coding - sharing ideas and taking turns is encouraged and a skill that needs to be learned as well.
Micro:bits are available for checkout - just like a book!
