The BBC microbit is an inexpensive and easy-to-program microcontroller with several built-in sensors and the ability to easily connect to a variety of output devices, such as LEDs, motors, and buzzers. Built-in Bluetooth makes it possible for several microbits to wirelessly communicate with each other to serve as remote controls, alarms, etc. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to experiment with and explore the possibilities of the microbit. Basic instructions will be given, so users with no coding experience can participate, and more advanced challenges will be offered to those with experience.
