It’s a Code Thing! MicroBlocks & MicroBits! Level 2 Experience

Ready to enjoy physical computing and have fun making IoT devices? MicroBlocks is the answer! MicroBlocks is the most intuitive and engaging tool for physical computing imaginable, and to create a global community of learners and educators around it. Support hands-on learning and creative problem-solving. Inspire a wide range of learners, especially those who do not initially see themselves as potential technologists. Help students and curious/creative makers everywhere discover the joys of physical computing. What’s so cool about MicroBlocks? It’s like Scratch and Snap! where command blocks (rectangular) can be executed, and reporter blocks (rounded) can be evaluated, simply by clicking on them. MicroBlocks works the same way, except your commands control a microcontroller that can interact with the physical world. Best Bits! • Click a block to turn on LEDs, drive servos and motors, and play music. • Sense inputs from buttons, temperature sensors, accelerometers, and so much more. • MicroBlocks scripting offers students what they expect — coding interaction with the physical world that’s live. *Each camper receives a MicroBit computer to take home to continue their coding experience.
