Oct 2017: Lorraine Underwood - Using the BBC micro:bit in real life applications

Learn how you can use the BBC micro:bit in real life applications like a cycling jacket, a running aid and as a fashion item!

We'll explore the electronics, the software, and the other skills to get these wearables working.

Biography: I am a maker living in Yorkshire. I have just recently returned to teaching at Lancaster Girls' Grammar School. I love to make fun, shiny and even useful things with boards like the Raspberry Pi and the BBC micro:bit. I am passionate about Computing being accessible and appealing to everyone. I run a Raspberry Pi Jam in Kendal library on the last Saturday every month and as part of my other job at Lancaster University I regularly run training sessions for Computing Teachers. If I could have anything it would be more time to make all the ideas in my head!
