My child is new to computers & programming. Will he/she be able to follow?The micro:bit Block Editor is perfect for beginners because the visual interface helps kids to understand programming concepts without the hassle and distraction of typing & learning the “right words” to type. 2. My child is younger than 7. Can he/she join?The micro:bit with Block Editor workshop is recommended for 7-13 year olds. If your child is below 7, please check out Tiny Techies (with BeeBot and Scratch Junior). 3. I’ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry. 4. Will my child be able to bring his / her projects home?You’ll get to take home your micro:bit essentials kit (which includes a micro:bit, microB USB cable for power/programming and 2 x AAA battery holder for mobile power). You can also take home your code files so that you can re-load your projects onto your micro:bit once you’re home! There’s a tonne of stuff you can build with your micro:bit, stuff you can find around the house and your creativity! We’ll be doing some projects in class where we’ll use additional components and materials - e.g. the micro:bit car. If you want to take home your micro:bit car kit, ask the teacher at the end of class and you can purchase a kit on the last day.Some kids like to take their code home every day, in which case you can bring a thumb drive to save your projects. But it’s not essential, as we’ll email you your code files at the end of the course.Please note:This workshop will proceed with a minimum of 4 tickets sold.
