We are joining up this month with the Hackster Hardware Meetup of DFW to host a workshop for kids. Bring your kids, a laptop, and a micro:bit! We will have a few extras, but please contact me first so I can set one aside for you.
Find a Friend: micro:bit Edition
The micro:bit is a business card sized computer. This tiny computer will allow you to learn how code while having tons of fun. The micro:bit allows for block-based coding with which you can program LEDs, robots, and so much more. In this session, we will learn the basics of block-based coding. We will write text to LEDs on the micro:bit and play sounds. Finally, we will build a friend detector that you can wear on your wrist. You will need to bring your own micro:bit, but you will be able to take it home to write your own programs and experiment!
To participate, you need the following:
A micro:bit (purchase from Amazon or from Adafruit) Microcenter has them too.
A laptop computer (Windows, Mac or Linux)
Parents with younger children will need to attend the kids workshop to help their child. You are also not allowed to leave your child unattended.
