Comp Sci Education Week – Build a micro:bit Mini Crane
December 9, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm AST
Are you a teen interested in robotics or do you enjoy messing around with electronics? In this workshop, you’ll assemble both the hardware and software needed to create a miniature crane controlled by the micro:bit microcontroller.
Join us as we kick off Computer Science Education Week with this hands on workshop. We are limited to 10 spots, so act fast!
What is a micro:bit?
The micro:bit is a small, compact computer based on a 43 mm × 52 mm circuit board. The board is easy to program and has several cool hardware features such as a processor, radio and Bluetooth antenna, 25 LED lights, two buttons, a compass, an accelerometer, and, the best feature, an edge connector used to power a wide variety of external hardware.
