Computer Programming with the Micro:bit!
Half-day: 8:45–11:30 a.m.
Come learn to program your own pocket-size computer!
Campers will explore computer programming with J-Blocks, a drag and drop coding editor, and then progress to a more formal programming language, Python, all while working with the micro:bit. The micro:bit is an inexpensive, pocket-size codable computer. It is a system-on-chip with 25 LED lights, two programmable buttons, a compass, and motion and temperature sensors. Since the micro:bit editors are all web-based, campers may continue to work on their projects at home during and after the class!
Campers will learn programming by building and coding a stopwatch, a thermometer, a traffic light, and a pedometer. Individuals will then select from a variety of more advanced projects.
At the conclusion of the session, each student will receive their own micro:bit kit to build fun projects for the rest of the summer! No prior experience with programming necessary!
Campers may join other MB camps in the afternoon, but must register separately.
