Building with micro:bit
Prerequisites: Basics 3
Following on from Basics 3, Basics 4 R/G/B is a 3-course series where students will focus on practicing the concepts learnt in the prior course(s) by building project-based mini-programs using the micro:bit. The builds are centred around the Internet of Things - a domain of programming which marries software with hardware to provide real-world solutions to everyday problems. Each Code Camper is provided with a micro:bit to run the micro:bit solutions.
Through each build, Code Campers will develop a greater awareness of user experiences so that they may design hardware applications with greater empathy. Their improved literacy in coding the micro:bit as well as exposure to a wider range of sensors will also enable them to harness each coding tool (variables, loops, events and conditionals) to solve different real-world problems both independently and collaboratively.
This 3-course series can be taken in any sequence. After completing this series of courses, Code Campers will be able to build mini hardware solutions relevant in their daily lives be it at home, school or play.
