The new Scratch makes it possible to program BBC Micro:bits – so let’s give it a go! For Scratch Day on 11th May, we’ll be exploring how to integrate the fantastic features and sensors on the Micro:bit with the flexibility of Scratch programs. Our young programmers will make a program from Scratch or could bring one they have started at home. By the end of the workshop, they’ll have planned and begun building a Micro:bit game controller or scoreboard to integrate the physical world with the digital. With a flick of the wrist, the Micro:bit accelerometer will control game characters, or the scoreboard will keep us updated as the game gains momentum.
9-12 year olds sessions must be accompanied by an adult.
