Online Tutorials Help Kids Use Their Imagination And Learn How To Code
The BBC micro:bit will be distributed to UK children to get them curious about writing code
Learning how to write code is becoming increasingly important in a workforce that continues to demand engineers. As technology evolves, systems become more complex and teams require more talent.
To encourage kids to experiment with code, tech startup Technology Will Save Us created the BBC micro:bit. The micro controllers come with a 25 LED matrix screen, a compass, Bluetooth technology, two buttons and an accelerometer. Three PINs allow for the use of lights, buzzers and more.
