Micro:bit Workshop – September

Microbit is an educational and creative tool to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software for computers.
Help kids to acquire the knowledge and skills to move from being consumers of digital information, being designers and creators.

How Micro:bit works
The learners will explore what the micro:bit can do, or polish their programs which will introduce them to a world of micro-controller boards.
This course demystifies the tech and explains how to make the most of the micro:bit. Each participant will get a micro:bit to learn about the hardware and how to program it using the block editor (visual programming). No coding or technical experience needed – this course is suitable for everyone.

Requirement:

No coding or technical experience needed

What do your kids learn?

  • Explore the digital making process; and at the same time, be introduced to the world of electronics.
  • They will learn to solve a problem put up to them; which will involve decision-making process via coding.
  • Kids will realize and understand the usage of micro:bit with its expanded capabilities to do different projects. They are encouraged to think creatively upon this realization

How do we at Kidscode impart our knowledge to your child?

  • We guide your child through step-by-step exercises to create the temperature detector project
  • After which we get them to rebuild this project or do a slight variation of it
  • We then leave them to build a simple new project from scratch
  • We get them to work on this new project without any guidance
  • We repeat the process to instill confidence and familiarity

This recursive training method helps to instill the basics of coding, the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code even after the course has been completed!

Temperature detector

Kids will learn and explore how to create a temperature detector using the micro:bit inventor kit. The temperature detector is able to monitor the room’s temperature and is able to activate automatically, displaying a happy or sad face based on a pre-defined temperature setting. Kids will also get to experience turning micro:bit into a simple circuit along with crafting a visual notification with LEDs, powering and controlling a motor-controlled fan and activating a speaker for sound effects.

Key Takeaways

  • Exposure to what is the most talked about micro controller – micro:bit
  • Learn how a micro:bit unit works
  • Learn simple block programming skills
  • Understand what is the term “Internet of Things (IoT)”
  • Most importantly gain a level of understanding that allows you to go on to create almost anything
