The BBC microbit is a powerful handheld, fully programmable, computer designed by the BBC. It was designed to encourage children to get actively involved in technical activities, like coding and electronics. In this course, we will be using them to code robots. It features a 5x5 LED Matrix, two integrated push buttons, a compass, Accelerometer, and Bluetooth. These features make it a great introduction to the world of programmable components and the wider internet of things. Students will build their very own robot, code & hack. Through various projects we will use a graphical drag and drop coding to produce some fun projects like ArtBot and making it move autonomously in a game setting.
