Micro:Bits! Classroom Friendly Climate Sensors for Grades 4-10

Led by: Greg Benedis-Grab

Date: Dec 8, 2023, 5:00-7:00pm ET, via Zoom

In our approach, students use programmable sensors (Micro:Bit) to ask questions, define problems and engage in the science and engineering practices. We democratize computing, so that diverse students can define the role of computational tools in our society. If we intend to impact climate change, all students need facility with the process of data collection to understand the problem and engineer creative solutions.

No prior experience using sensor technologies or programming is needed.

One Micro:Bits kit will be shipped to each participant in advance!

Cost: (Limited # of tickets!) $25 per person to reserve your spot. This workshop is offered under our ClimateSTEM Series and is sponsored by ConEd.
