CODING MICRO BITS
This open source hardware designed by the BBC (every student in England receive one micro bit when entering middle school) is used in computer education. Recently, Balmoral School’s Grade 7 & 8 classes received these through a training session attended by Mr. McLean. We have over 10 of these Micro Bits. Micro Bits can be coded to perform many different functions; such as digital pedometer, simulated games, and the brains to control small machines. Students recently coded them to great a rock, paper, scissors game. The students can use radio waves, and Bluetooth technology to allow the Micro Bits to communicate with each other.
