micro:bit bracelet

Event sponsored by First Flight Venture Center and run by TechGirlz. Please email Ruth Willenborg with any questions. Thank you!

In 2017, every 7th grader in the UK was given a tiny programmable computer to help them learn coding. So what is this small, affordable technology called? A micro:bit!

In this workshop, students will use the micro:bit’s drag and drop interface, MakeCode, to learn how to code the device. Students will walk through the various features of a micro:bit and learn how the code they create can activate animation, temperature sensing, radio buttons and motion sensors. Students will also design and make their own animated bracelet.

Note: Please bring a laptop. Snacks will be provided. There is a circular driveway in front of building that can be used to drop off/pickup. Additional parking around building.

Schedule: A tour of Hangar6, Research Triangle region’s premier prototyping and design assistance space for technology-based companies, will begin promptly at 5:10 PM. Workshop instruction to follow.
