Do you wish to learn how to operate microcontrollers, and make the most of their capabilities?
Do you love programming?
Then the new Micro: bit coding program of stem @ home action is for you!
The BBC micro: bit, a platform for aspiring software engineers, developed and supported by world-leading companies in innovative technologies, is a portable – smaller than your palm! – fully programmable computer. With a built-in compass, accelerometer, temperature and light sensors, radio and bluetooth low energy antennas, 5×5 LED panels and two control buttons, the possibilities are endless.
To program the board, we have chosen a user-friendly graphical interface, Microsoft’s MakeCode, that will familiarize our younger friends with fundamental algorithmic techniques, while providing the necessary and desired flexibility.
