Thanks to our friends at the Roanoke Robotics and Makers Club patrons can now check out a Micro:bit! We want to encourage our community to discover new technology. What’s more, coding is an increasingly important skill to have.
What is a Micro:bit?
It is a pocket-sized computer. It has 25 red LED lights that can flash messages and be used to create games.
To use the Micro:bit patrons can visit a number of coding websites, create a project, save it to their computer, and then import it into the Micro:bit and watch their coding in action!
Here are some sample sites for coding:
For additional learning, we recommend checking out YouTube videos.
