bbc microbitLearning code with the BBC micro:bit

The course will focus on coding with the BBC micro:bit. This is a handheld, programmable micro-computer with a 5×5 display of 25 LEDs, Bluetooth and sensors. It can be coded in Blocks, JavaScript, Python, Scratch and others, and can also connect to and interact with sensors, displays, and other devices.

The micro:bit is a great piece of kit and will provide not only an engaging coding challenge but also some impressive outcomes. During the three days, students will learn about the device and how it works, and code it to perform a variety of activities using the MakeCode interface.

 

Course cost

The cost for the three-day course is $295, which includes the use of a computer and micro:bit starter kit during the course, as well as access to appropriate software.

Book your spot

We’re running just one group and places are limited. So, if you’re interested in joining the holiday programme, please get in touch as soon as possible.
