Course Details

Lesson 1-1: Let's learn how to work with the BBC Micro:bit programming platform. We learn how to connect it to your computer, how to program the LEDs and how to understand the buttons. At the first lesson a student will learn how to display pictures, animations and sounds. At first we will create code in a visual editor, but we will go straight to the JavaScript language. programming.


Lesson 1-2: Take the first step towards a smart city. Build traffic lights from models printed on a 3D printer. We will understand how traffic lights work and what they are. We will connect LEDs to the traffic lights and program them.


Lesson 2-1: Talk with the students about the rules and regulations of the road. We will learn why accidents happen and how technology can help us. Using the BBC Micro:bit microcontroller we will create our own railway crossing. We will use a motor that will open and close the barrier. And it will also turn on lights and sound. The design of the barrier will be prepared from 3D models.


Lesson 2-2: How do you protect your home while you are away? Everyone knows the answer - the alarm system. Today we will learn how alarms work and make our own circuitry. We simulate the doors, program the BBC Micro:bit, connect the necessary elements, and test its work.


Lesson 3-1: Designing the mBot and programming it in Python. Movement, different directions, turns. We will create a program so that the robot can stop in front of and around obstacles using the distance sensor.


Lesson 3-2: Controlling the robot from a tablet. Performing motion tasks. High-speed cargo transportation. Light signaling and sound output.


Lesson 4-1: Connecting the LED, Controlling the LED glow using a phone and an app created by the students themselves.


Lesson 4-2: Working with motors and connecting multiple ultrasonic sensors, reading information. Driving a car along a line. Creation of an app on the phone and control of the motors.


Day 5: Creating their own robot model, using cardboard as a base, Arduino as controller, DC motors and wheels, ultrasonic sensors and LEDs. Students take the robots home and can continue learning on their own
