Are you interested in robotics or do you enjoy messing around with electronics? In this workshop, you’ll assemble both the hardware and software needed to create a miniature crane controlled by the micro:bit microcontroller.
What is a micro:bit?
The micro:bit is a small, compact computer based on a 43 mm × 52 mm circuit board. The board is easy to program and has several cool hardware features such as a processor, radio and Bluetooth antenna, 25 LED lights, two buttons, a compass, an accelerometer, and, the best feature, an edge connector used to power a wide variety of external hardware.
