Microbit Projects

Microbit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. Since projects will be done virtually, a physical microbit will not be used and all projects will be done via simulation. If students have access to one, they are welcome to use it.
Take the first steps of learning Robotics with the BBC Micro:bit, a pocket sized computer that combines the magical world of software and hardware. Develop your critical thinking and digital skills by generating ideas and transforming into practical projects through Micro:bit

 

FLASHING HEART

Learn how to make your desired image appear on a virtual micro bit using show leds. You will be using code blocks to add a blinking effect to your image. If a physical micro bit is available, codes can be downloaded and viewed there as well.

DICE

Learn how to program a micro bit to select a random number between 1 and 6. This number will then be shown on the LED display allowing campers to play numerous number-based games.

ROCK, PAPPER, SCISSORS

 Learn to design images that will be used in a game. You will first draw images of rock, paper and scissors. Then using code blocks a number will be assigned to each image. The games will then be played using a variable tool to select a random number: 0, 1 or 2 associated with the images.

FORTUNE TELLER
