micro:bit robotics workshop

micro:bit is a small programmable computer and an innovative educational tool for teaching programming, robotics and automation. It is designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with no prior knowledge computing. Being so easy to use it is an excellent spring board to more complex programming skills. After learning the basics you can program it with various programming languages such as Python and JavaScript. It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects. There is no upper limit in the variety of micro:bit-projects!
