Coding + Making with Scratch + micro:bit
Double the creative possibilities by connecting physical and digital worlds. Learn how to use Scratch programming blocks for interacting with the popular, low-cost micro:bit device. Use the micro:bit tilt sensor to control characters in your Scratch game, and program animations on the micro:bit LED display. A hands-on collaborative workshop for participants with any level of experience.
