Computer Science - Year 7
Year 7 Summer 2 Microbit Lesson 1 and 2
This project would normally involves coding a BBC micro:bit. You can code the micro:bit using a range of languages including an ‘editor’, similar to ‘Scratch’, using code blocks that you can drag and drop.
The online coding environment includes an ‘emulator’ (basically a simulator), so although you won’t have access to a physical BBC micro:bit, you will still be able to run your code and interact with the programs using the emulator.
Follow the instructions in this PowerPoint for Lessons 1 and 2: https://eggbuckland.sharepoint.com/ict/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?FolderCTID=0x0120000378C730A095B548A03D751F04491F09&View=%7BB7DE9556%2DC347%2D43BB%2D928C%2DBC6F6A68B46B%7D&id=%2Fict%2FShared%20Documents%2FStudent%20Files%2FYear%207%2FMicrobit%2FLesson%201%20and%202&viewid=b7de9556%2Dc347%2D43bb%2D928c%2Dbc6f6a68b46b
