Micro:bit Robotics and Authentic Problems


A Workshop

Rob Poulter

The Micro:bit is a very affordable and accessible and hugely versatile microprocessor which can be used to for everything from basic coding to optimisation and networking.

This hands on workshop is about how you can use the Micro:bit together with the UN Global Goals for Sustainability to allow students to design and create robotics projects to solve authentic problems.

The design, code and fabrication is as complicated as you want it to be.
