BBC micro:bit launch at Ysgol Bryn Elian

IMG_7019On the 22nd March, Ysgol Bryn Elian launched the micro:bit to teachers and pupils in North Wales. This micro sized computer has 25 LEDs, a compass, input buttons, i/o contacts, an accelerometer and a low energy bluetooth antenna.

We were on air at 8:20am on BBC Good Morning Wales

Our Year 7 students had a great day, they started out by learning all about broadcasting before getting down to teaching some Year 6 students and some secondary school teachers all about the micro:bit.

The students even put together a piece for the BBC Good Evening Wales program.

The launch also appeared on BBC Wales today too!

All that remains now is to get coding with these awesome devices.
