Micro:bit for Juniors



Microbit for Juniors is part of our inclusive programs at this year’s PyCon Ghana for junior tech enthusiasts.

Micro:bit: What is it?

Micro:bit is a pocket-sized, codable computer packed with features. It boasts an ARM-built processor, a motion sensor, built-in compass, USB port, 25 LED lights, buttons, and Bluetooth technology. So, the micro:bit can be used to create all sorts of things.

Why Micro:bit for Juniors?

Tech is often stigmatized as a complex and difficult field, but how can we break this down and make tech more fun and interactive to inspire higher levels of engagement and creativity in a new generation of young people? The simplicity and versatility of the micro:bit makes it an easy, fun starting point for junior scholars. Micro:bit helps students get hands-on and switch from being consumers of digital information to designers and creators.
