In this lesson, we are going to have a play with the BBC micro:bit and explore its capabilities. We’ll start off looking at text, numbers, and manipulating the LED lights on the micro:bit, and using the micro:bit to do some simple maths too. We’ll explore music and sounds. We will also code up a simple “dice” app.
