Introduction to & coding with: Micro:bit    
Keith Quill, Senior ICT Lecturer & Software Developer IT Tallaght

This is a hands on 4hr course, where participants will be given both an introduction to and an advanced course in micro:bit

The micro:bit is essentially a programmable computer,  an ARM-based embedded system designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK and very much aligned with Leaving Cert Computer Science  especially the Applied Learning Task 4. The micro:bit can be programmed in several languages, some of which include,, Java Script and Python. While aligned with Leaving Cert’ this could also be very easily introduced in primary school or junior cycle.  

Course Outline:
• Introduction to the micro:bit
• Coding the micro:bit
• Inputs and sensors built into the micro:bit (Radio, temperature, motion, light intensity, g force and many more)
• Variables
• Conditional Statements
• Communication of micro:bits (using the radio)
• Breadboards and the micro:bit • Basic circuits
• Digital outputs on a micro:bit • Digital inputs on a micro:bit (using a pir motion sensor)
• Analogue outputs • Analogue inputs
