As more of us adjust to working from and supporting learning at home, whether as teachers, parents or both, we’ve gathered together some projects that are enjoyable and will help keep young minds busy.
Games of chance
If you’ve been playing games at home – or making your own – the BBC micro:bit adds another dimension. Learn how code and physical computer systems work together by making these projects that use the micro:bit’s motion sensor and random number generator to create games of chance.
These projects are a great place to start – you don’t even need a physical micro:bit, you can try them out in the simulator.
Need to shake more than 6? Modify the code! Perhaps your game needs something other than numbers – move North, South, East, West, move forwards or back 3 spaces? Use the Magic 8-ball project as the basis of your program. Or perhaps you could use one of these games to settle an argument!
