Code Club: Do Your:bit
2 Feb 2021 - 27 Apr 2021
Join our Virtual Code Club and change your world with Code!
Each month we will work with you to set challenges and invite you to online support and sharing sessions.
From February until April we bring you challenges relating to Do Your:bit and this year’s UN Global Goals:
Goal 3 - Good Health and Well-being,
Goal 13 - Climate Action
Grab a ticket for our first challenge focusing on your health and wellbeing, and taking a look at how bats navigate their local area.
February 2nd- March 2nd
T-Rex-ercise Step Counter
In this project you can research your favourite wildlife, discover exciting new animals and learn about their different habitats. Take your Micro:bit out as part of your daily lockdown exercise and collect some ROARsome data with your T-Rex-ercise Step Counter.
This project will use a BBC micro:bit, sensor:bit and sonar:bit, together with a light sensor, to make bat goggles that work in the dark or low-light – just like how nocturnal bats use sonar!
Tickets will be available soon for the following challenges:
Take care of your wellbeing with a couple of challenges relating to books!
March 2 – March 30
Retell J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic tale The Hobbit by coding a BBC micro:bit to become Bilbo Baggins as he embarks on an adventure, interacting with other BBC micro:bits via the radio function
Use a BBC micro:bit to time your reading speed and stream that data to excel, where you can figure out loads of cool stuff using data science.
Connect to nature in your local area through folk tales.
March 30 – April 27
Create an uncanny folk disguise using BBC micro:bits to animate a folkloric creature, and explore how this tradition strengthened our connection with nature and our local environment
You can reserve a BBC micro:bit to collect at one of our open Libraries for Free! Just search for ‘microbit’ within our catalogue. Leeds.gov.uk/libraries
