Coding your Micro:bit

Course Description:

This is where coding and engineering collide.

We begin with the foundation of a computer—the hardware. Then we get binary (01101100 01101111 01101100) to learn how a computer executes coded instructions. We put this together with programming concepts in JavaScript and learn how to program the Micro:Bit, an interactive pocket-sized computer that’s yours to take home. We learn to use JavaScript to detect motion, send messages, and make games while developing real-world hardware skills.
