CSED: Making and Learning with Micro:bit *Off-Site*

Educators, join us at the Museum of Boulder (2205 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80302) on Saturday, December 7th from 10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. for an educator-focused Computer Science Education (CSED) week workshop. Reserve your spot by filling out this form: https://forms.gle/XDEZ9xjTppEBEs7i9 .

 

In this workshop you’ll get hands-on with the micro:bit, an easy-to-code tool that opens up a world of creative computational possibilities for you and your students. No experience with coding or electronics is necessary and educators from all disciplines are welcome.

 

During this workshop you’ll learn how the micro:bit can be used in a variety of disciplines from biology to art. We’ll walk you through the basics of coding the micro:bit and you’ll have time to experiment with micro:bit add-ons like soil moisture sensors and color changing lights. Additionally, there will be time dedicated to working collaboratively or independently on planning how the micro:bit can be integrated into existing lesson plans or curriculum.

 

Admission to the Museum of Boulder and lunch are included in this free workshop and all workshop participants will take home two micro:bit go kits (each kit includes a micro:bit, USB cable, and battery pack).

 

Questions can be directed to Celeste Moreno: celeste.moreno@colorado.edu

This event is part of Boulder Computer Science Education Week, December 3-9, 2019.

Create apps. Code robots. Design stories. Explore new technologies, new programming languages and environments, meet robots, try coding, engage with problem solving and gadgets. Meet extraordinary people of all ages doing amazing things during Boulder CSED Week.

Boulder CSED = free Computer Science Education programs for everyone at your library, school and tech partner organizations.

We have code at our fingertips as we drive our cars, check the news on a laptop, or message a friend with our cell phones. Boulder CSED Week invites learners of all ages (adults, school aged kids, and even pre-schoolers) to consider code and create with it! Experience robots, and control them with code, make a block based program or write out coded instructions, learn how to code a new device or make an app, visit with a robot at story time, and more! All of Boulder CSED Week’s program are free and open to the public. Programs are hosted by local experts, educators, and makers, and inspiring technologies offer pathways for code-learners of all levels of experience. Some programs ask for pre-registration. Join us - create with code for this year’s Boulder CSED week!
