Learn to code using the amazing micro:bit. We will use different programming languages to work with this versatile piece of hardware. We will start off with Microsoft MakeCode, then use the micro:bit in combination with Scratch to create and play games. Finally, we will use a text based “grown-up” programming language such as Python to control our micro:bit.

  • Understand and use the sensors on board the micro:bit
  • Learn to code the micro:bit using MakCode
  • Use the new Scratch micro:bit extension
  • Bring your virtual game into the real world with the micro:bit
  • Learn about programming concepts such as loops, conditionals, IF/THEN/ELSE statements
  • Learn to code in Python using the micro:bit
  • Coding – Learn to code with this great little tool

  • Logic – Solve challenges using Maths logic
  • Test and Debug – using critical thinking systematic reasoning
  • Play – Watch the micro:bit come alive playing your code

  • Discover – New ways of coding this cool hardware

Participants are provided with all the equipment they will need for this particular course. However, they are expected to bring:

  • Lunch (in-house camp only) – All students are expected to bring packed lunch for the day (nut-free and not to be shared)

  • Water – In a re-fillable water bottle. No glass or fizzy drinks please.
  • Ready to Learn – we expect all children to come in with a great learning attitude
