What are we going to do?
In this activity you'll learn a bit more about the micro:bit board.
You'll learn about computer programming, algorithms and instructions.
After finishing this activity, you'll be able to use some of the micro:bit inputs to do diferent things like showing emojis or playing texts on the screen depending on the input.
You'll also assemble the humbot mi:pet. It's quite cool and you can choose different components to personalize it, awesome!
Now it's your turn!
It was about time to let you try it for yourself! I now propose some challenges that I encourage you to do. I think they are fun and I trust you can pass them!
Remember that each time you change the program by adding or removing some blocks, you can see how it looks at the left side of the editor. When you're happy with the result, you'll have to download it again and send it to micro:bit board following same steps as before.
Here you have:
- Change the initial Hello! message for another one. You can choose whatever you like, but don't make it too long. Or if you prefer, you can show a face or emoji (remember first activity).
- Add another face when both buttons, A and B, are pressed at the same time.
- Add another message or face when micro:bit board is shaked.
- Extra challenge, if you were able to show a countdown on Activity 1, can you use A button to start the countdown and B button to stop it? And it would be awesome if you can use shake to reset the counter!
