An extension to our Coding exercises in select Grade 7 and Grade 9 classes has been the use of a micro-computer product called the BBC Micro:bit. Students used an online app called Microsoft MakeCode to extend their Coding to a device separate to the Computers from which the Coding was being completed. As expressed by many students … “This is Really Cool Sir!”
Mr. G. would like to thank his colleagues in the Science Department for helping the school to secure the approximately $1000 worth of Micro:bits which were donated through the non-profit organization Kidscodejeunesse.org and the Government of Canada CanCode initiative.
