Take Home: Bring back the Game:Bit you built! (Materials worth $63)
At the end of the camp, you will create a simple game and a kit that looks like a handheld gameboy that you can take home. Furthermore, you’ll be well-equipped and hopefully inspired to make many more projects on the micro:bit.
What is the micro:bit?
What Will You Learn?
You use all kinds of electronics devices all day—find out more about how they work! You’ll learn about digital vs. analog, input vs. output, and much more.
Code the micro:bit
The micro:bit is a tiny computer you can control with code. You’ll write your very own programs to control the micro:bit and various attached components!
Program in MakeCode
You’ll be doing your coding in Microsoft MakeCode, a beginner-friendly block-based programming environment. No semicolons or curly braces here!
Computer Science concepts
You may not hear us explicitly teaching these, but you’ll learn about core CS concepts like variables, event handlers, conditionals, and loops.
This ratio lets instructors give their best, most attentive mentorship to all participants.
$200 Course Fee
Materials and equipment are provided, including all micro:bits and components. GST included.
All beginners welcome! This course is aimed at kids aged 10–15 years old.
Bring your project and kit — including a $35 micro:bit — home to continue tinkering!
