Course Description

For Ages 7-10

By the end, kids are not only introduced to important programming concepts in a gentle visual programming interface, they will understand how objects can be created with a mix of both hardware & software & go on to create their very own inventions. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Keepin’ it Short & Snappy
  • Coding + Hands-On
  • Visual coding interface: Perfect for younger kids
  • Continue the Learning: Bring your micro:bit home
  • Requires Start with Scratch or equivalent block-based programming experience

All you need to know

This is a BBC micro:bit.

microbit

It’s a “pocket-sized micro-computer” designed by BBC for computer education in the UK that allows you to create super cool inventions. Kids use a simple block editor interface to create…

Kids learn not only to code, but to apply their new found programming superpowers to a variety of real world projects. This all culminates in a final project where kids get to solve a problem scenario of their choice using micro:bit!

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Code a beating LED Heart with micro:bit
  • Make it Useful – Code a Random Dice
  • Sound it out – Make a Keyboard, Shaky hand buzzer game
  • Code a Rock, Paper, Scissors Game
  • Build Mini Games with the Radio feature on micro:bit
  • Project Time: Solving real world problems with micro:bit
  • Share & Present

Life skills you'll learn

Logical Thinking
Presentation Skills
Problem Solving

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
