Learning Outcome

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • understand how to use a Micro:bit with your breadboard as input


  • go over what is programming
    • just a set of instructions


  • go over Micro:bit breakout board
    • only use the following pins for input and output (others are needed to run LEDs and other important things):
      • 0,1,2,8,13,14,15,16,19,20


  • show demo of Micro:bit sending a "1" (+3.3 Vcc) to a breadboard
    • remember: you have to use the Micro:bit for power and ground; you can not use the power supply

Daily Assignment

  • make the following programs, from your iPad and get them working on Micro:bit and breadboard:
    1. single LED always on, no code just power and ground from breakout board
    2. single LED when you press the "A" button
    3. single Transistor when you press the "B" button
  • once you have it working with Block language, do the same thing with Python
