Class Experience

  • Learn how to use the MakeCode editor Learn how to program the micro:bit Learn how to use the micro:bit's built-in accelerometer, display, buttons, speaker microphone, and thermometer. Write 4-6 programs using the micro:bit's features.
I have been teaching coding with the micro:bit for over 6 years.
You need a Version 2 micro:bit, and a micro-USB cable (you probably own 10 of these cables!).

Please be very careful and make sure you are ordering a Version 2 (V 2). Prices and availability vary wildly!

Learners need to drag a file in the (Finder MacOS or File Explorer on PC), and many do not know how to do this, and struggle. Parent help may be needed to learn this skill!

I teach coding classes using Scratch and micro:bit robotics on OutSchool. I truly believe that Scratch is the best coding platform for kids. And micro:bit is by far the best "physical computing" device for learning robotics! I love the excitement...
