Year 9 Computer Scientists have been working on physical computing with micro:bits this term.

Micro:bits are pocket-sized computers designed to inspire students to understand the world of coding in a tangible, fun way.  Micro:bits can be programmed in many different ways and have multiple uses.  

Projects undertaken by students included designing music players, cookie clicker games, a Bop-it game and even a full action adventure game with graphics using the Micro:bit as a controller!  

Working with Micro:bits develops students' computational thinking skills and progresses their coding skills so they can advance to complex projects.  Students learn how to collaborate by working in small groups and they are engaged through the features of the Micro:bit which sparks their creativity.
