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 set brightness of an image set brightness to set the brightness of the LED screen. We will be learning how to set the brightness of the LED screen using LED show LEDs, on button pressed and set brightness.
learn how to set the brightness of the LED screen
learn how to run code when an input button is pressed
learn how to turn on all LEDs
