Our future is connected with coding and programming but many people find it difficult to understand programming because of long and complicated text based languages.

In this course, you will learn fundamentals of coding and programming with latest BBC Micro:bit V2 which is pocket sized codable computer. To support BBC Micro:bit , we will use MICROSOFT MAKECODE BLOCK editor.

If you are starting with programming computers, the BBC Micro:bit is an ideal choice to learn various input-output devices and sensors. For its size, the BBC Micro:bit is an incredible educational tool that will let teachers, parents and students have fun with code to create real world examples.

The objectives of this course is to make you understand coding and programming of real life examples with hands on experience using BBC Micro:bit V2.

This course is explained with STEM based teaching method which inspires children to learn about coding with fun. All the projects encourage children to improve their computational thinking, creativity and problem solving skills.

We will learn projects like door alarm, digital thermometer, virtual pet, moisture sensors, step counting, heads up game, waterflooding, SMART home and many other projects which are based on real world examples.

COURSE JOURNEY:-

  • Get to know about BBC Micro:bit V2, its input-output devices (LED, Buttons, Pins, Speaker, Bluetooth- radio signal ) and different sensors (Accelerometer, Magnetometer, touch logo, light senor)
