This track provides access to various micro:bit tutorials covering advanced electronics concepts. In these tutorials you will work with your child to explore the fundamentals laws of electricity, your child will also learn the differences between active and passive electronic components, you will work together to create simple electronic circuits, integrate these circuits with your BBC micro:bit and write code to trigger different behaviors. As part of this course you will use the BBC micro:bit to interact with the real world using the LDR sensors, LED’s, resistors, PIR sensors, moisture sensors, etc. You will use the makecode block based coding platform to write your code. These tutorials will help you build upon the knowledge gained coding with Scratch and the BBC micro:bit.
This is an advanced micro:bit track with a focus on exploring fundamentals of electronics and electricity. We would highly recommend that you complete the following tracks before you start off with this track.
Introduction to coding concepts with Scratch I
Introduction to coding concepts with Scratch II
Exploring Coding Concepts Using the BBC micro:bit I
Exploring Coding Concepts Using the BBC micro:bit II
Exploring Coding Concepts Using the BBC micro:bit III
Design Interactive Games Using the BBC micro:bit

About the tutorials
This development track offers access to tutorials created by M Atkinson at http://Multiwingspan.co.uk. The purpose of the http://Multiwingspan.co.uk was to allow the author to host the web pages that he had designed as well as to provide additional materials related to the subjects that he taught. Pages produced by students have also published on this web space in the past. Content created and hosted at http://Multiwingspan.co.uk is owned by M Atkinson.
We will be using the official online python editor to write code for all our tutorials.
