Introduction 2 Engineering (i2E) stimulates student's interest in STEM subjects through hands-on, practical activities.
In this BBC micro:bit workshop, pupils are guided through a series of challenges where they will create code to move a Microbit robot through a series of tasks.
Pupils program a transmitter and receiver to introduce remote control, adjusting their code throughout to improve their robot's performance.
Minimum of 2 participants, maximum of 30 participants.
Full day £495 to accommodate 2 classes, 2 full days £850, 3 full days £1200. Days do not have to be booked consecutively.
