BBC Micro:bit empowers students to create all sorts of interesting projects and creations. In this session attendees will get to create and code games using Micro:bit that use the various sensors in the devices as well as the display. Educators will be able to expand current coding practices to physical games as well as learn how Micro:bit can tie to the new Scratch 3.0 to interact with creations on the screen.

- Explore the different sensors in a Micro:bit including the accelerometer to track how the device is being moved.
- Learn how students can make simple games that they can code themselves and play with others.
- Build with the new link in Scratch 3.0 to control control student made Scratch programs.

This session is suitable for Primary and Middle Years Educators interested in exploring physical computing and making. No previous experience with Micro:bit is required but an interest in simple block based coding would be a benefit.
