Do your :bit Challenge

 

The inspiring do your :bit challenge brings together the micro:bit and the UN’s Global Goals to provide inspiring activities for children and young people aged 8-18 in your classroom or club for an exciting digital challenge. Test your imagination and combine creativity and technology to come up with solutions for the Global Goals by tackling the issues we’re facing today. Come up with innovations that make the world a better place – And you could win some amazing micro:bit prizes with your ideas!

This year’s challenge focuses on Goal 3 – Good Health and Well-being, and Goal 13 – Climate Action but entries can focus on any of the Global Goals. There are lots of ideas and examples of projects on the website, from ‘send a smile’ to ‘light up fishing nets’.

Children have from 11 January to 4 June 2021 to enter the do your :bit challenge – find out more here. ​

Here at the Science Oxford centre we are running a do your:bit Creative Computing Club for ages 9-12 to help kids create their own designs on Saturday 16th January 2021. Find out more and book here.
