To support the BBC and micro:bit Foundation's new micro:bit - the next gen campaign, Technocamps in partnership with Techniquest are hosting professional learning events for primary school teachers across Wales during February and March. 


These events are supported by the BBC, micro:bit Foundation, Hwb and Techniquest with the ambition to support practitioners across Wales to further enhance their delivery of Curriculum for Wales utilising micro:bits.

The event will start with an overview of the micro:bit features and components and how to program them with MakeCode. This will include a breakdown of the variety of sensors and inputs with suggestions for how the micro:bit’s capabilities may be used for small and large projects within the classroom. In the second half of the session we will get hands on, building an assortment of micro:bit projects that cover the full breadth of the Curriculum for Wales.

By the end of this physical event, teachers will leave with a deeper understanding of the micro:bit's capabilities and how to integrate them seamlessly into their lessons. The practical projects offered will empower educators to inspire and engage students across a spectrum of subjects, fostering a dynamic and interactive learning environment.

As part of the BBC micro:bit - the next gen campaign, primary school pupils can get involved in a large-scale playground survey during the summer term. Children will use the BBC micro:bit to investigate the size, biodiversity, temperature and pupil activity levels in their school playground. The survey activities will introduce pupils aged 7-11 to machine learning and working with digital data. The BBC micro:bit – the next gen team will talk you through the exciting resources available and how you can support pupils to become data scientists in their very own playground.
