WHAT TO EXPECT

Please note this class will be conducted live via Zoom.

This programme will introduce the basics of robotics and visual coding using the Micro:bit platform. Students will learn how to digitally manipulate a virtual Micro:bit device, its various input and output functions and also create simple and fun-to-interact games. There will be two levels for this programme:

Level 1

  • Learn about the Micro:bit, its parts and main functions

  • Understand inputs and outputs

  • Push buttons, LEDs, basic start/pause statements

  • Simple logic, loops, rock-paper-scissors game

Level 2

  • Learn about a servo motor

  • Create a windshield wiper simulation

  • Multiple conditions, nested if statements, variables

 Virtual Micro:bit 

 Visual block-based coding

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. My child has no coding/robotics background. Would this be an issue?

No problem at all!  The Micro:bit is deliberately chosen as an ideal introduction to coding for absolute beginners.  Kids will be using a visual, block-based editor that will get them programming in a matter of minutes.  We will be focusing on the concepts of coding, not its mechanics.

2. Any minimum number of participants required?

Yes, a minimum of 6 participants is required for this course to run.  Any event of cancellation will be made known to registered participants at least 1 week prior to commencement.
