This course aims to introduce girls to the world of coding using Micro:bit, a versatile edu tech tool. We will use Micro:bit’s MakeCode platform that incorporates colour coded blocks based to teach coding using Micro:bit stimulator. Girls will have fun making games and animations while learning about foundational coding concepts. 

This 8 week course aims to introduce basic coding concepts by working on fun projects involving music, games and emojis to explore the potential of coding with Micro:bit.
