This book introduces learners to the world of making and programming through
a series of real-world challenges that feature the micro:bit.


Learners study the building blocks of Computer Science in a practical and engaging way by making real-world products and solving real-world problems using code. Learners start using a “block-based” language called MakeCode to learn the fundamental concepts of Computer Science whilst applying them to the physical world. Learners then move on to using Python, a text-based programming language, and explore more advanced features of the micro:bit.
