The students of the Cambourne Electronics and Robotics Club (CERC) were excited to win the element14 Summer Challenge and immediately got started with the BBC Micro:bits and the Kitronik Inventory kit. CERC conducted two sessions on Sunday 18th August 2019 with the beginner and the advanced batch. Each batch had 20 students in the age group of 7-14years.   The first project was to make a simple project with a buzzer that was connected to the pin P0 and GND (0V) using the Kitronik kit and u ...
Radu is one of the most excited members of our club. Descovering micro:bit and kitrokik, he loves it so much that he convinced his parents to acquire for him these kits, such that to be able to do his own researces, at home. Actually, several members of our club did so. So, he presents us his new projects, at our meetings. Last week it was about "Reaction"; I recorded him: He explains how the electrical power goes from one hand to the other/ from hand to head / from hand to a plant... The ...
One of the goals of this ongoing project is to introduce students to microcontroller programming and provide a practical understanding of micro:bit hardware, software, and programming. Microcontroller programming is popular for robotics and understanding how software controls hardware. It is also a very fun way for students to learn about computers and programming because of the drag and drop” block coding application. During each session, students learned about Microbit and Kitronik har ...
The benefits of coding extend far beyond creating software and websites. Before students start working with micro:bit, they must first learn computational thinking skills, which is the ability to approach a problem in a structured and logical way. Incorporating computer science into core curriculum is well-deserved. Not only does it give all students the skills needed to enter the growing field of computer science and gaming, but it also teaches them foundational skills such as problem solving a ...
The complete and running 10-LED PWM Controller. A messy rat's nest of project wires on this project. It was unavoidable, unfortunately. (Images & video via me.)     Driving three LEDs was a good start. The real goal is to control a lot of them. My next step on this mission is controlling ten LEDs. I did do it, technically. However, I lost one key functionality, recording the sequences. The issue came down to insufficient memory for storage.   However, I was able to control ...
As we announced in our code club prezi presentation, on 24th of August, we participated to the Robotics festival, at its first edition, that was organized in our town by ”RO063 Wafy”” robotics team. The event took place into one of the Petrila Mine buildings. (Petrila Mine was the first coal mine from our country. In 2015 was closed. The subsistence of about 80% of the families in our town was depending on mining. Now, lots of people left the town to work abroad for supporting ...
Hi, i participated to the Summer Code Club Challenge together with nicoleta (Nicoleta Cindea). And we established our summer code club. We created a prezi describing „Our story so far”; you can see there what we did at our club and feel the atmosphere of our club. Everything is so great! Thank you, for the opportunity to create this club! Hope you'll enjoy it.   https://prezi.com/p/sypmhzv_ounn/petrila-summer-code-club/ (it seems that you have to copy the link and p ...
"Tap-tap, is this thing on?" I'm catching up on things that have already happened. Once I'm sure I'm posting in the right place I'll be adding updates over the next few weeks. These will be reposts of my original notes on our website https://forum.makeit.zone/t/element-14-micro-bit-summer-of-code-club-challenge-2019.   We were very lucky to be selected as winners of Element14's Micro:Bit Summer Code Club Challenge!   To help us bring coding to our community we received:   - a ...
The three LED Light Show. The start of everything. (All images and videos from me.)   Like programming a sound sequence, I thought it would be useful to do the same thing with light. In this project we will start working on developing a Light Show Sequencer.   To make it simple, I will start with just 3 LEDs. I used the same kind of interface as in the Sound Sequencer project. Although the buttons are clicky, it does the job. Feel free to use any sort of keypad you want.   The ...
The Micro:bit Accelerometer Theremin. Cool case, but no lights this time. (All Images: ME)   I didn’t care for the sound that the last accelerometer Theremin produced. I wanted something that produced a pure square wave sound. The result was more than I could have wanted. It sounds like Atari sounds better than the Atari Punk Console a few projects back. There are two modes of this Theremin. One is a pure square wave. The second is “smooth” mode, where the sound can be a ...
This week we got the chance to work in Monterrey, Nuevo León, a city near McAllen, Texas, training 15 teachers on how to use technology, digital manufacturing and Electronics to boost creativity in the classroom,   micro:bit micro:bit Summer Code Club Challenge - Winners Announced! ...
Micro:bit Tutorials in Spanish As part of the work I'm developing with the microbits from the micro:bit Summer Code Club Challenge - Winners Announced!, here are two tutorials on how to start with Microbit (sorry only in Spanish)   The first one is "hello world" or your first program and circuit with microbit.   The second one is a water sensor for a plant ...
Aguaforence, analyzing water using art and technology:   The micro:bits finally arrived in our office in Mexico City. While we waited for the kitronics kit, we had an idea to do a project in the mexican mixteca, a region with beatiful landscapes but also with a lot of challenge.   For the last year we have been working in a community called Tamazulapam, very famous for it's river and clean water. In the community we work with 25 students,14-16 years old, in differente maker projects ...

About this project  This project uses a classroom of micro:bits to pass messages between them in a circle. Each micro:bit listens to the radio for a message that matches the name of the person who is using it, shows something on the LEDs and then sends the name of the person on their left over the radio to continue the chain. When everyone has this working you should see the pictures flash around the circle of the group as the messages are passed on. This project is a good example to see v ...
  I’ve already created a slew of sound based Micro:bit projects: BBC Micro:bit – Light Theremin BBC Micro:bit – ADVANCED Light Theremin BBC Micro:bit – Atari Punk Console BBC Micro:bit – 8-Button Melody Synthesizer BBC Micro:bit – 16-button True-Tone Sound Sequencer & Synthesizer BBC Micro:bit – Accelerometer Tone Adjuster and MicroSynth Case BBC Micro:bit – Accelerometer Theremin   One thought always popped up. How can ...
