micro:bit

The micro:bit is a palm-sized microcontroller with an LED display and a variety of onboard sensors. Featuring an edge connector that allows it to use many more sensors, motors and other devices, it can be programmed to be used in any number of creations.

In this exposure course, students will be introduced to fundamental coding concepts and use them to build some simple projects. A visual programming interface allows students to focus on breaking down and solving problems without worrying about memorising syntax/commands or typo errors.
