Building 3 fun projects with the micro:bit V2

Date: May 26

Time: 7 PM CEST / 10 AM PDT

In October 2020, The Micro:bit Educational Foundation announced the BBC micro:bit V2 with all the features of the original, and with the addition of a microphone, speaker and touch sensitive logo. The micro:bit V2 uses the nRF52833 SoC and opens up a whole new range of opportunities for students around the world.

In this webinar, Jonny Austin, CTO of The Micro:bit Educational Foundation (seconded from Arm) will guide you through building 3 fun projects with the BBC micro:bit V2, each showcasing the V2's new capabilities (e.g. microphone and motion). It is not expected that everyone has a micro:bit V2, yet feel free to follow along if you do. The session will be family friendly, though we’ll set the pace to make sure we can cover a few examples in the time.

In addition, we'd like to highlight the do your:bit challenge, a micro:bit digital challenge that inspires students (aged 8-18) to find tech based solution for the UN's Global Goals (more information in the link)! The challenge closes on July 30, 2021.

Prior to this webinar, it is recommended to watch the "Introduction to the micro:bit V2" webinar and read about the new micro:bit V2 here
