Using www.microbit.org/LETSCODE use this lesson to teach students to code!
Using the accelerometer sensor, the BBC micro:bit can detect when the logo is oriented up. We call that the logo up event. We will use on logo up to register an event handler that will run when the logo up event happens.
Learn how to plot image on logo up, on logo up to run code when the micro:bit screen is facing up and vertically orientated. We will be learning how to plot an image with the logo up, basic show LEDs, and logo down.
