Description:

This workshop is a continuation of the “Learn to code with Micro:bit” course. In the first workshop, participants used the Micro:bit to create their own animated emoji, produce an electronic name tag, and compose a melody. In this new workshop, participants will upgrade their coding skills by using more complex programming structures, including the use of loops, conditions, variables, operators, and random values. They will use these structures to create their own games of chance and games of skill.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Review the fundamentals of coding with Micro:bits
  • Use conditions and loops to control the flow and outcomes of the program
  • Use variables, operators, and random values to add new features to their game, including scorekeeping
  • Create their own games of chance and games of skill
