Tinkercad Circuits to Design and Test Circuitry controlled by micro:bit (4-12)
David WeightmanRoom D - K3272
The BBC micro:bit has proven to be an effective tool for bringing physical computing into the classroom. Tinkercad has the ability to use Block Code and simulate functionality of the micro:bit such as controlling student conceived circuits that will bring their ideas to life.
Educators looking to leverage the micro:bit to control circuitry for use in their Design Engineering projects might be interested to learn more about designing and simulating circuits controlled using the micro:bit in Tinkercad. A natural fit for both Grade 6 and 9 Electricity Units, this tool is useful for anyone looking to get started with circuits, Digital IO/Analog IO, automation and the Internet of Things.
Workshop participants will design, simulate and build circuits controlled by a microcontroller.
Target Grades: 4-12
