On 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.
