Computer Science Classes Use Micro:bit Accessories to Redesign Project

This Fall semester, students in Computer Science learned how to program Micro:bits to create various projects, such as scorekeepers, board games, and more. Micro:bits are pocket-sized computers with an LED light display, programmable buttons, and other add-on accessories of sensors or servos. The second quarter exam project was an opportunity for students to recreate and redesign a previous project to reflect their gained knowledge on the subject. In their project redesign, students were required to utilize Micro:bit Hummingbird accessories that included sensors, lights, and servos. Many students took this opportunity to add rotation servos (wheels on Santa’s sleigh) to mobilize their updated project.

Computer Science teachers are Ms. Charlene Ford, Mr. Matt Foss, and Ms. Lauren Guidroz.
