Introduce your child to the exciting and fun world of computer programming with this 6 week Micro:bit Make Code Course!
The Micro:bit is a tiny, microcomputer with programmable LEDs, light, temperature sensors, physical connection pins, motion sensors, and wireless communication via radio and Bluetooth.
Using a combination of interactive lessons, concept explanations, videos, puzzles, quizzes, and mini projects, this course teaches young children to write block coding programs and then deploy the code to the micro:bit wirelessly.
Students can use code to program physical buttons, display messages on the micro:bit, animate the LEDs, simulate dice and coin flips, and detect gestures and shakes.
This free introductory course is suitable for children aged 8-10 with no previous coding experience and will take place every Wednesday for 6 weeks.
Micro:bit Make Code Course begins Wednesday 19th February at 3.30pm in New Ross Library.
