Coding with virtual micro:bits - Randomizer Games


Join UOttawa Maker Mobile for a fun interactive workshop. You will learn basic coding concepts and will create your own version of a randomizer game, for example a coin flipper or a game of Rock, paper, scissors using a virtual micro:bit board.

Did you know?

A micro:bit is a small board, half the size of a credit card, that has a micro-processor, accelerometer, sensors, a display of 25 LEDs and two programmable buttons. It’s now used around the world to help children like you learn how to write software and build new things. You can access a free virtual micro:bit at makecode.microbit.org. We recommend that you create an account before the workshop if you want to save your work.

This is the first workshop of a serie of 4 worksohps. Each workshop is stand-alone.  No previous experience is required.

For ages 8 to 12.
