    This one-day professional development course is intended to introduce Middle through High School teachers to physical computing with the BBC micro:bit, a popular micro-controller for Computer Science and STEM education. The micro:bit is an inexpensive and excellent hardware platform for teaching the fundamentals of programming, digital and analog electronics and physical computing. The course will include both circuit construction and programming activities, with circuits constructed on a solder-less breadboard. To make programming more accessible to those with limited experience, most programs will be written as a group activity guided by the instructor.

    In addition to teaching the technical aspects of using the micro:bit for physical computing, the course will include guidance on creating and distributing circuit diagrams, avoiding common errors in circuit construction, and setting up an effective system for storing and sharing program files.
