Intro to Block-Based Programming Using MicroBit
Location: ZOOM (Link will be emailed to your inbox)
Recommended Age: 9-15
Time: 1:00PM to 3:00PM Mon-Fri PDT
Date: July 19 to July 23
Student Capacity: 10
In this week-long camp, kids will get exposure to block-based programming primarily focused on:
- Practical applications of programming
- Conditionals, control structure, variables
- Common programming etiquette and practices
Students will complete projects including a rock paper scissors game and pedometer. This course is meant to build interest in computer programming. Students should take this course if they have none, or close to no exposure to computer programming. If your child is already experienced in block-based programming, please refer to the "Basics of Python Using Microbit" course. A laptop will be required for every student.
An online emulator of a Microbit microcontroller will be used for this workshop. Students may also use physical hardware if they have it available. A Microbit can be bought here. Please note that other sensors not included in the kit may be used later in the workshop as students continue to learn.
Prerequisite: None! Come excited to learn :)
