SI pupils enjoyed their introduction to Micro Bit in Computing earlier this week. Micro Bit is a tiny programmable computer designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK.
The device is half the size of a credit card and is powered by a tiny processor with a small amount of on-board memory. The device contains accelerometer and magnetometer sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 Led’s, two programmable buttons and can be powered by either a USB cable or an external battery pack.
The PA are delighted to support this initiative and provide funding towards the Micro Bits.
“We are keen for the School to evolve its support of computing across the year groups and look forward to seeing some of the completed projects.” – Ian Downie, Chair, Parents’ Association.
