Join our week-long Summer Computer Science Program with the Micro:bit! Taught by a programmer with over 15 years experience in the industry, this immersive program is designed to introduce students to computer science and coding.
Students start their journey by getting to know the micro:bit, a small, programmable device packed with sensors and LED lights. They will dive into the fundamentals of coding and learn concepts like variables, loops and conditionals statements.  Students will work on multiple projects throughout the week such as creating games, interactive stories, and practical applications.  Students will also learn about voltage, resistance and Ohm’s Law using breadboards.
Beginner coders can code with a block-based programming language like MakeCode or Scratch. For more advanced students they will be encouraged to use a text-based language such as Python or JavaScript.
Participating students will receive a Micro:bit kit and electronic components at the start of the class.
