Micro:bit is a tiny programmable computer, designed to make learning easy and fun. Students will learn how to program a scrolling marquee to display their name, how to blink a smiley face on the micro:bit matrix, as well as how to connect external components, such as LEDs or sensors for more advanced projects.
Start your child on the exciting path of learning and discovery through technology. Each student will leave with their own micro:bit.
