Description

Find out about the new features of Micro:bit V2 with this practical online course. No need for an actual micro:bit as coding can be done using the online editor & simulation MakeCode (although if you do have a new V2 Micro:bit all the better!)

Activities will include demonstrating the built-in speaker, microphone, touch and sound sensors and will include opportunities for hands on coding for simple physical computing activities using MakeCode.
