A minimum of 10 pax is required to start the workshop.
This workshop introduces participants to micro:bit hardware, the block-based programming environment, PXT and how to create a simple digital game with push buttons as input to display random images such as scissors/paper/stone using the micro:bit. 
Participants will also learn how to:
  • Give instructions using the block-based programming environment to display different images,
  • Upload the programme onto the microcontroller,
  • Use push buttons on the micro:bit as a form of input,
  • Use the LED grid to randomly display images by pressing a button,
  • Use push buttons to trigger an evasive action.
    This workshop will be held at Jurong Regional Library.
    This programme is suitable for participants aged 10 -19 years old.
    Each person is entitled to only one micro:bit. Hence, participants are required to bring their own micro:bits if they have received one from previous IMDA Digital Maker workshops.
    Admission is free and registration is required.
    Participants are advised to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the workshop, as allocated seats will be released to interested participants 5 minutes after the start of the workshop.
