Icancode Microbit Computing Workshop
120min onsite coding workshop (3 Sessions)
Learn computer science and coding concepts which are essential skills for the future.
Instructor-led project based learning in a creative environment through the BBC Microbit computing projects.
Children will draw upon their creativity and imagination while learning new programming concepts which are applied to the projects they develop.
What is Micro:bit?
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer designed to inspire every child to create their best digital future. It is a multi-functional tool that works in lots of different ways when programmed to do so. Through the micro:bit, children are encouraged to explore their ideas while using real code and real computational thinking, and it makes coding fun.
Through harnessing both the hardware and software, it helps grow children’s computing knowledge and provides a practical purpose to their learning. The device lets children discover that that they can control the design and application of technology in their world.
