Playground: micro:bit

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come join us in the conference playground and experience hands-on activities using STEM-inspired technology, among other things. The Playground is not a typical session you attend, but rather a time for you to investigate, explore, and play firsthand with different "toys".  Visit with the technology trainers from Utah’s Regional Service Centers, UEN, UofU, and the STEM Action Center.  Come and go as you'd like, or spend an hour (or two) in the Playground!

Playground Session Description: The micro:bit is a handheld, programmable micro-computer that can be used for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – endless possibilities! Start with one of the over 200 different free activities and resources, from easy experiments to creative coding challenges. From there you can move to coding it using any web browser in Blocks, Javascript, Python, Scratch and more; no software required. Come and give micro:bit a go!
