Event Details

Microbits Workshop: Microbits are programmable devices that are smaller than a credit card and can be programmed by you. The device has a display of 36 tiny LED lights which can be used to make letters or images, along with buttons and sensors that allow for programming of simple games. We’ll learn how to make it display messages and counters and finally to program a rock, paper, scissors game.
