Ākonga in M2 are currently working on a unit coding Microbits. Microbits are pocket-sized computers that help introduce students to how software and hardware work together. They have an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that you can program and physically interact with. The students have coded their name and had the letters flashing on the LEDs. They have also created a 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' game. The microbits are on loan from the Computer Science Department at the University of Canterbury.
