AiTLE + mico:bit Alliance + HkedCity + HKUSPACE : micro:bit Workshop Series

Dates: 12/18/2017 Times: 14:30 - 17:00 Location: HKUSPACE at Kln Bay

“micro:bit everywhere”, I think this term is very suitable to describe the situation right now. From school teaching, teachers sharing, students competition, or even books publication, we can see the involvement of micro:bit. No matter STEM, no matter Coding Education, or no matter Smart home, Smart Campus and Smart City, all involved micro:bit.

The learning on how to use micro:bit and even its teaching has a great demand. Most micro:bit training, once promoted, will become full in a short period of time. To cope with the need, AiTLE is joined handed with micro:bit Alliance, HkedCity and HKUSPACE to launch a workshop series called “micro:bit Workshop Series”, so as to cope with the training need.

In order to have the workshop run smoothly, we have categorized the workshop into 5 different levels,

Detail of each level is as below :

  • Level 1 : micro:bit Basics
    • micro:bit hardware interface (button, LED, sensor)
    • micro:bit Let’s Code Platform and Resources
    • Ways to connect micro:bit to device (Bluetooth, USB)
    • Way to flash from device to micro:bit
    • Simple micro:bit Coding (3-4 activities)
  • Level 2 : Built-in micro:bit I/O
    • micro:bit Coding using micro:bit built-in sensor
      • Light sensors
      • Accelerometer
      • compass
      • temperature sensor
  • Level 3 : Connect micro:bit to other devices through PINS (I)
    • Connect micro:bit to other sensors and servo motors
    • Radio Transmission (Easy communication between micro:bits)
    • Adding Package
    • Small scale project on real life scenarios
  • Level 4 : Connect micro:bit to other devices through PINS ( II )
    • Connect micro:bit to other sensors and motors
      • Fischertechnik / Arduino / Breakoutboard / TinkerBoard / KittenBot
    • Bigger project on real life scenarios
  • Level 5 : micro:bit and Big Data, IOT
