You can join the fun. This program is part of the Hour of Code, a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce more students to computer science and computer programming. Micro:bit is a super easy-to-use, tiny and powerful micro-controller. In this workshop you will learn to code a simple program, transfer it to the micro:bit and see the result. Session participants get to keep their micro:bit to take home and code on their own!
