The Data Sciences Academy, in partnership with CSTA-Arizona, is excited to announce the Equip Your Genius: Parallax Training in Micro:bit event happening Sunday, December 3rd starting at 11am. We will convene at the University of Arizona main campus.
This event is primarily for K-14 classroom teachers of any discipline. We will focus on how to use the micro:bit device – a small physical device with buttons and an grid of LEDs – in a variety of contexts and subject areas. You do not need to already have a device to participate. New to micro:bit? “The BBC micro:bit is an award-winning programmable device that allows students to get hands-on with coding and digital making,” – click here to learn more.
