300 Addressable LED Strings with Microbits & Python

Youth Workshop by Robert Wiltshire & Garry Hunt (He/him) 🎟

Saturday from 5:50 PM - 6:50 PM in Youth Workshop

Children can learn to control addressable RGB LED using the Neopixel library and Python on the BBC Microbit. Starting small with a 10 LED attached to a Microbit and then upgrade once the code is working to strings of 300. Join us for an exciting 60 minute workshop where your child will delve into the world of coding using the innovative BBC Microbit and Neopixels. This hands-on session is tailored to match the Key Stage 3 & 4 computing curriculum, making it a valuable addition to your child’s education while keeping it fun and engaging. In the workshop children will create a simple device that changes the lights, teaching them essential programming concepts such as variables, loops, conditionals, and functions. The workshop is more than just a coding lesson; it’s an introduction to how technology integrates into various aspects of our industries, from manufacturing to creative arts. This session is a fantastic way for your child to see the real-world impact of technology and to spark their interest in innovation and tech careers.
