Design Lab: Intro to the MicroBit

The MicroBit is a tiny, programmable computer designed to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software for computers and building new things, rather than just being consumers of media. The MicroBit can be programmed with block-based coding similar to Scratch as well as with Java and Python. This session will focus on the features of the standard hardware, and free browser-based Microsoft Makecode software.

Projects will include using the simulator, producing scrolling text and music, and setting up groups of several MicroBits to interact with each other via Bluetooth.
