BBC Micro:bit for Beginners

This event introduces the BBC micro:bit and is a hands-on virtual course. The micro:bit is essentially a programmable computer. The micro:bit is designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK and around the world. The micro:bit aligns very well with primary school curricula, Junior Cycle short course and the new Leaving Certificate Computer Science subject. This session is open to complete beginners, from primary to second level, for those who have never used the micro:bit before – essentially a getting started session.

Teachers who complete this course can borrow a class set of Micro:bits for use in their own school.

Structure:

  • Introduction to the micro:bit
  • Coding the micro:bit
  • Inputs and sensors built into the micro:bit (temperature, motion, light intensity and many more)
