Micro:bit Robot Car

During this Winter Break course the students will program and build a Micro:bit robot car. The car will be controlled by a 2nd Micro:bit which will act as the robot car's remote controller.

Micro:bit

What is it?

  • Much like a tiny, pocket-sized computer, the BBC micro:bit encourages kids to learn basic coding and programming skills to prepare them for today‚Äôs tech-savvy world.
  • Each Micro:bit features 25 LED lights in a 5 x 5 grid and acts mostly as the device's display.
  • There are two programmable buttons, which allow students to interact with the device as a user of the program they have created, such as in game-play or to skip through music.
  • It also features an on-board compass to track the direction of the wearer.

Robot Car Course

What will we do?

  • During this Winter Break course the students will program and build a Micro:bit robot car. The car will be controlled by a 2nd Micro:bit which will act as the robot car's remote controller.
  • Each Micro:bit comes with a USB cable to connect the Micro:bit to a computer ready for programming, as easy as plugging in a usb memory stick.
  • To program the Micro:bit students will use RoboBrain's own RoboBlock application, a block coding system which is a great environment for young students to progress with coding as they can start with colored blocks that they can drag and drop onto their workspace to construct their programs.
