How does a "Multi-Day" course work?
Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

There are no open spots for this class, but you can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
This class is an introduction to the micro:bit, an amazing, low-cost, credit-card-sized computer that can be used in a large variety of robotics projects. But for this class, you only need a $20 microbit kit. TLDR: You need to buy a Version 2 micro:bit for this class. In the next class in this multi-class series, you'll need to buy a robotics kit from Yahboom. This class is the first of a series of classes that will use the micro:bit with the "Yahboom world of module programmable sensor...
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!). Some sources: https://www.amazon.com/Microbit-Starter-Kit-Micro-Built/dp/B09MBBT9YL/ref=sr_1_9 https://www.okdo.com/us/p/bbc-microbit-v2-2-single-board/ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/17287 https://vilros.com/products/microbit-v2 Please be very careful and make sure you are ordering a Version 2 (V 2). Prices and availability vary wildly! If you just want to get the Yahboom kit (needed Robotics - Part 2 class) with or without the micro:bit: https://category.yahboom.net/collections/mb-robotics/products/wom-sensor-kit-microbit?variant=39416926699604
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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...
