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.
1 Lesson per day Mon - Thur (28th - 31st December) + Sat (2nd Jan)
