'Micro: bits and bots' workshop for High School aged students who want to learn more about coding - suitable for beginner coders.
ECU's School of Science is proud to offer this workshop for high school-aged students interested in learning more about computing and security. Join us for a day of coding in python using micro: bits to move a smart robot car around a course. The day will start with learning the basics of Python, coding the car kit to light up and move as well as using the sensors to make it turn. Extension – Network Security and Bluetooth
Plan for the day -
9:00 - 10:00 - Workshop One – Python basic and Micro: bit functionality – loops, logic, debugging as well as images, instructions and accelerometer
10:00 - Morning tea - please BYO
10:30 - 11:30 - Workshop Two – Micro: bits – let’s get the car moving -
11:30 - 12:30 - Workshop Three – Micro: bits – let’s see what else we can get it to do - twist, turn, dance!
12:30 - 1:00 - BYO Lunch - sit under the trees and enjoy the surroundings - we do ask that 'no feeding the ducks'!
1:00 - 2:00 - Workshop Four – Smart Robot Car kit and its functionality – Moving through a course and following a pattern
2:00 - 3:00 - Workshop Five – Project work - Make your robot move through an obstacle course by steering the vehicle using Bluetooth - great hacks!
Date: July 4th 9 am - 3 pm
Cost: $16.50 (inc GST)
