Have you heard about Micro:bits? They are these affordable pocket-sized computers with infinite possibilities! Come and see how you (yes, even YOU!) can learn to block code and use these mighty machines to transform your classroom! Micro:bits can revolutionize how you teach science with student-driven projects including designing environmental monitoring or automated watering systems, light and temperature sensors, and even replacing circuit building and diagrams with this neat little device. Learn how to use them in Math for random number generators and teaching variables and a variety of computational thinking skills. You will walk away with resources and lessons that you can use Monday morning as well as some creative funding ideas to help get them into your students' hands ASAP. This session is or all levels of students and coding abilities. Trust me, if I can code, so can you!
