Student code-alongs 2022

Primary Live

Date/time: 29 June 2022, 1100 - 1200 (BST)

This summer, you and your class can join a LIVE micro:bit coding session with other classes from across the UK. This code-along will be led by Lorna from the Micro:bit Education Foundation who will take your class through step-by-step instructions needed to make a fun summer activity picker!

This live code-along is suitable for ages 8 and above. And don’t worry if you haven’t used micro:bits yet, this session is aimed at beginners.

You can join with or without micro:bits as we will be using the MakeCode editor which has a built in simulator.

Supported by Nominet Social Impact

What you need to take part:

Students will need a laptop/tablet with access to the MakeCode editor (please check your students can access this in advance)

A screen to show the code-along. This will be broadcast on Microsoft Teams
