Micro:Bit coding is the perfect fit if your child is interested in electronics or if they want to build robots or rockets one day. This little device packs very powerful capabilities: LED lights, speakers, a temperature sensor, a microphone, and even an accelerometer. Coding is done in a simulator that works just like the physical Micro:Bit. You don’t need to have a physical device to take the class. But if you do decide to purchase one, all of your class code will work perfectly on the device without any changes.

Students learn how to control electronic components like LED lights, speakers, and sensors, while building fun games and interactive experiments. Review foundational coding concepts such as loops and conditional statements, and learn more about variables. Will also explore advanced Micro:Bit features such as radio and buttons. Find out how to have two Micro:Bits message each other. Plus learn how to code functions, and even master some cool math and security concepts.
