Use the BBC Microbit website to teach your stucdents how to code!! Excellent STEM activities. www.microbit.org
Buy some real life microbits for your classroom to make you lessons come to life.
Lesson can be done with and without physical microbits.
Learn how to show LEDs by showing an image on the LED screen. We will be learning how to create a blinking app using a forever loop as well as simple commands, such as show LEDs, pause, and clear screen.
learn how to repeat code in the background forever
learn how to show LEDs on the LED screen
learn how to pause your code for the specified number of milliseconds
learn how to turn off all the LED lights on the LED screen
