Participants will need a laptop with an available USB port to connect and flash the micro:bit. A fully charged laptop and a power supply is also recommended. 

As part of this program Let’s Talk Science has developed a workshop specifically tailored to support our exciting new classroom Action Project - Living Space. This project will coincide with Canadian Astronaut David Saint-Jacques’ upcoming mission to the International Space Station (ISS) and is offered in partnership with the Canadian Space Agency, with funding support from the CanCode program.
During our workshop, participants will:
• Explore the online resources for the Living Space action project;
• Code micro:bits with MakeCode, a JavaScript Blocks editor, and incorporate custom sensors to record environmental data;
• Develop confidence incorporating computational thinking, as well as digital and coding skills into the classroom.
