Blueinno Inventor Program

Micro:bit Basics

 
Build Your Own Gadgets with Micro:bit

 

Using BBC's micro:bit, students will be familiar with coding concepts and sensors by building projects that can solve real-life problems. At the end of the course, students will be able to build their own inventions and take away their own guitar/lamp/ DIY Cards / Light Up Hats / whatever light and sound related inventions.

 

  • Learn computer science concepts with Micro:bit, e.g. repeat loop, conditional statement, randomness, functions

  • Hands-on fun activities to program the onboard sensors to visualize what they have programmed

  • Understand Mathematics & Physics Concepts with real-life examples, e.g Acceleration, Speed, and Gravity

  • Hands-on fun activities to visualize what they have programmed

  • Build Your Own Lamp / Guitar / Other inventions

Target Age Group: 8-11 (Grade 3-6)
