The OKdo MicroBlocks Activity Kit delivers outstanding creation tools at an affordable price. The world of app development has never been so accessible! With 10 development boards per MicroBlocks activity kit, a teacher can provide lessons to a small class of students or more with the help of external tools from the BBC.
Applications are very fast to develop with the intuitive graphical language which INSTANTLY programs the board as each block of code is moved into place. Simply unplug the board and deploy without the hassle of manually programming the image on to the board. Quickly have your BBC micro:bit development board started with out-of-the-box support for popular projects as well as pre-loaded subjects.
Lessons included in this kit are:
- - Buttons and LED display where students will become familiar with the development environment and learn how to control images on the display at the press of a button.
- - Magic 8-ball teaches students how to control applications using the accelerometer with a simple shake that can answer any question you ask!
- - Radio Texting teaches students the fundamentals of radio communication and how to send messages to other friends in the vicinity.
- - Sound and Music makes use of the loudspeaker to play music using predefined notes. Why not pick up a piece of piano sheet music and play it with the micro:bit?
- - Colourful LEDs introduce the full spectrum of light colours and how to synchronise it with audio tones.
- - Sensors and graphing lessons will teach students how to graph real world measurements for later analysis back in the lab.
- - Step Counter is pretty self explanatory. Who does the most steps in one day?
- - Data Logging teaches students how to measure data remotely and send it back to the computer wirelessly using the radio.
- - Simon Game teaches students how they can develop their very own games on this powerful computer board.
- - Flashlight tag introduces how LEDs can behave as solar panels and detect light in a game scenario to play with others in the room.
