Introducing Micro:bits and Learning Basics of Computer Code
Teacher: Chad Mairn

A micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces people to how software and hardware work together. These small computers have an LED light display, buttons, sensors, and input/output features that can be programmed to do certain things. In this 1-day workshop, kids will:

  • Understand the various parts of a Micro:bit and how they work,

  • Gain an appreciation of how code is used to program machines, and

  • Learn how to create a name tag, sound and light programs, a thermometer, and more. 

Chad Mairn is a librarian, teacher, and author who frequently shares his enthusiasm for 'all-things technology' as a speaker at library and technology conferences. He is an Information Services Librarian, Assistant Professor, and was the founder of the Innovation Lab at St. Petersburg College.
