Computer Science: Microsoft Microbit and CS Discoveries Circuit Playground
Combine physical computing and coding with the Microsoft MicroBit and or the CS Discoveries Circuit Playground. Both allow programming from any web browser with no special software. Invent your own designs or use existing projects. Devices can respond to various inputs, for example the Microbit can respond to buttons, light, motion and temperature, providing for endless problem solving options.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Connect the device to the computer
- Understand the features of the device and how they can be used to solve problems
- Write a program on the computer and transfer it to the device
