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 create a simple greeting message using animations and text with musical notes when button A is pressed.  Make a simple greeting card with musical notes using the piezo speaker strawbees and cardboard.  Material fee ($12 per pax) include one piezo buzzer, 2 crocodile wires, strawbees and customised cardboard.

Participants will also learn how to
  • Give instructions using the block-based programming environment to display different images,
  • Upload the program onto the microcontroller
  • To display messages and music by pressing a button
  • Program the piezo speaker and connect to the micro:bit to play musical notes when button A is pressed.
This programme is suitable for participants aged 10 and above; adult and senior citizen above 50 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.
