Passionate Engineer, ScriuCod Mentor
I am a front-end developer with over 12 years of experience. I found my vocation to teach children to code at ScriuCod by volunteering in foster homes. Giving back to orphaned children was a life-changing decision and meant a lot to me.
I’m a creator and I like to build things. Now I have the chance to teach other children to express their creativity using code, 3D printing, sensors, motors. Anything with a power cable!
Workshop – Micro:Bit a small computer for kids
The goal of the workshop
We will build a game on MakeCode that will simulate a Micro:Bit controller.
What will we do in this workshop?
Together, we will do some exercises and experiments with our first project for loading it on a microcontroller. All this comes with simple code examples and practical use in our game.
