Micro:bit Codebreakers

Y5, Y6
120 mins - workshop
Programming, Solve problems

Children will learn how to use a BBC micro:bit to send messages to each other, considering the importance of privacy while trying to work out who their secret agent partner is, and then try their hand at some basic encryption techniques.

This workshop is run using the MakeCode editor (similar to the popular coding language, Scratch), or can instead give your children a fun introduction to the text-based coding language Python (for experienced learners).

This session can be run in either:

  1. A classroom with accessible plug sockets
  2. A computer suite
