Micro:Bit power for Year 6!

Leave a comment

Year 6’s first computing lesson of the year was very exciting! We investigated the power of the BBC micro:bit – a simple credit card-sized computer that can be connected to a PC, laptop or tablet via a USB cable. We visited www.microbit.co.uk and followed a YouTube tutorial to discover that we could display our name on a scrolling L.E.D. display. It only took three lines of MicroPython code to do so and Mr Peace is letting us take the micro:bit home over the weekend to see what else it can do! Happy coding!
