About this Campaign

Help our 4th and 5th grade students learn to code with SparkFun's micro:bit kits! These kid friendly, hands-on, easy-to-use kits get kids excited about learning and gives them hundreds of ways to be and feel successful with coding. Using the Microsoft MakeCode website https://makecode.microbit.org/ students can explore many different tutorials to learn how to code the micro:bit. Then, they can take that knowledge and use their creativity to come up with their own coding.

From the SparkFun website:
The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. You can code, customize and control your micro:bit from anywhere! Use your micro:bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more. At half the size of a credit card, this board is equipped with a surprising amount of hardware, including 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The micro:bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading. It can also use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to interact with other devices and the internet.

I am requesting 32 micro:bit Go Bundle starter kits and 32 protector cases for the micro:bits to increase their longevity. I am also requesting 2 photo keepers that each include 16 individual plastic boxes to organize and store the micro:bit kits.
