Interested in an introduction to computer programming?
Join the growing community of data science educators for a free half day training using micro:bit, a mini computer that fits in your pocket. Lunch and PD certificates provided.
NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
It is our hope, that at the end of this half-day gathering, you will be better informed to bring emerging technology learning opportunities for your students. New to micro:bit? “The BBC micro:bit is an award-winning programmable device that allows students to get hands-on with coding and digital making,” (https://microbit.org/get-started/getting-started/introduction/). Micro:bit features include radio and Bluetooth antenna, processor and temperature sensors, compass, accelerometer, buttons, micro USB socket, LED display and light sensor, microphone and speaker. Imagine the possibilities! Take a look at the project ideas that teachers are using, https://makecode.microbit.org/projects/.
This FREE workshop is sponsored by Parallax, Computer Science Teachers Association of Arizona, and the Institute for Computation and Data-Enabled Insight (ICDI) at the University of Arizona.
We look forward to meeting soon! In the meantime, questions may be directed to the DSA at email@example.com.
We will convene at the University of Arizona main campus, ENR2 Building Slot Canyon Cafe, First floor. 1064 E Lowell St, Tucson, AZ 85719
