Students will learn programming concepts using Microsoft's block-based Makecode and the micro:bit, a pocket-sized computer with a built in 5x5 LED display, 4 sensors, and a number of other robust features. MakeCode teaches students how to code using block and text editors.  By pairing lessons with the micro:bit, students will learn how to incorporate hardware into their programs and create interactive games and tech, such as pedometers and custom instruments.   Please note that there are devices available for loaners for this class or you may buy a device online at Amazon.com (https://amzn.to/352yidc)
