Lesson 3 of 6


7-11 yrs

Start learning about inputs and outputs using buttons and icons on the display.

Key learning:

  • Code the micro:bit to make different outputs happen depending on different inputs. (This is a very simple kind of selection. We look at selection in more detail in lesson 5, Nightlight.)
  • Understand that inputs and outputs involve the flow of data in and out of computers.
  • Apply this knowledge using the micro:bit’s button inputs and display output.
