The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer which is super easy to use and can be used across the curriculum, not just STEM subjects. It is a great programmable platform for anyone of any age. The simplicity of the micro:bit makes it an easy starting point for early year groups but it can also be a powerful tool for experienced coders.  It can be coded with JavaScript, MicroPython, Microsoft Block Editor and Microsoft Touch Develop.

Registration: There is no cost as this is a Google funded event.

This session would suit teachers wanting to learn how to use the Microbit in the classroom to teach programming. Beginners are most welcome.
