Intermediate Coding & Microcontrollers
with BBC micro:bit, Microsoft MakeCode editor and Grove Inventor Extension Kit
Program Type: Teacher Tech Skill-Up
Duration: 90 minutes
Sometimes the built in features of micro:bit just aren’t enough – the Grove Inventor Extension Kit comes packed with four additional inputs (gesture, ultrasonic and light sensors as well as a potentiometer) and four additional output methods (speaker, 4 digit display, LED light strip and single LED module) plus an extension board to dock the micro:bit and open up additional pins for all these new gadgets!
Building on the foundational knowledge from our Introduction to Coding & Microcontrollers Skill-Up session, teachers will learn how to interact with multiple inputs and outputs to create more complex interactive devices.
