Museums Victoria for Teachers & Scienceworks presents

Online - Intro to micro:bit mini computers

**Now re-designed for trial online PL at a reduced price**

A beginner’s guide to learning how to use an affordable, versatile tool to teach digital technologies and design.

Perfect for complete beginners to teaching Digital Technologies through physical computing. Write simple block code to control a microbit mini computer. The microbit can be used to make many interesting projects including a scrolling nametag, a step counter, rock paper scissors game or a voting machine or even used as part of a science experiment as a datalogger.

Please have a computer with USB input available. This workshop is best for those who have purchased a micro:bit but need some guidance to use it or need project/lesson ideas. If you do not have a micro:bit you are still able to attend the PD using the online simulator. Micro:bits can also be purchased for less than $30 from a variety of online retailers.
