This is the Castlemakers Physical Computing in Putnam County (PCiPC) webpage, or our plan to distribute the micro:bit board in Putnam County. We were funded by the Putnam County Community Foundation on 6/7/19. In the fall of 2019 we’ll be giving away a micro:bit to every 6th grader in Putnam County through the four Putnam County school systems. You may also be interested in our CoderDojo and Pi Makers meetup.
Resources/links for this initiative may be helpful for anyone interested in more about the micro:bit device:
- You can read about the micro:bit features here.
- Hardware geeks: here’s the reference material, including input/output pins and much more.
- MakeCode is the block based code editor from Microsoft that works with the micro:bit and some other devices. You can also link to it from the micro:bit website.
- There are other programming languages that can be used on the micro:bit, go to the micro:bit code page for descriptions/links.
