Physical computing with the Micro:bit

at Yatton Library

This 6 week coding club is suitable for 8 – 12 year olds.

In this course students will be introduced to the micro:bit and will learn how to connect it to other devices in order to control a light, a fan, etc.

If you are curious about how the world works around you, then this course is for you.

Students will:

  • learn the principles of programming using the Microsoft MakeCode editor
  • learn about analog and digital inputs and outputs
  • learn about sensors and how to use them with the micro:bit to operate a physical device
  • learn to use and connect a motion sensor, a push button, a sound sensor, an LED light and a mini servo.
  • program the micro:bit to operate with the sensor
  • learn to problem solve

Places are limited.
