MicroBit Robots

Unit Objectives

To understand how to use block coding to programe commands into the microbit to control input and outputs. To use block coding or python coding and understand how to control inputs, outputs as well as radio control.  

Use python coding to demostrate coding, to control advanced features of the microbit.  

The MicroBit computer is a great mini computer with various built in components such as an LED display, buttons and an accelometer. 


The MicroBit computer is used as a USB stick where you load the code onto it once produced online.
