# micro:bit Projects

## What can a micro:bit do?

Open the micro:bit projects website at  https://www.microbit.org/projects/

Look through the projects available there and pick out five of them that look interesting.

You will be feeding back to the class in a few moments about this.

## Learning Intentions

• Understand the capabilities and limitations of a digital device

• Plan out a project using your understanding of micro:bit

## Success Criteria

• I can plan a project using a digital technology and know the limitations of the technology

## Lesson outline

• Today you will look into and develop your own micro:bit project
• You will be designing your project similarly to how you did it in Scratch in S1.
• Just as you did in S1, you'll be evaluating each other's projects.

## Technology has it's limitations

• Whenever you work with technology, it's important to know that there are always limitations with what it can do.
• For example, how many numbers are there?
• There are actually, infinitely many.
• This means that there is no limit, meaning that a computer cannot ever count how many numbers there are.
• Did you know computers cannot divide by 0?

## micro:bit limitations

• The micro:bit is quite a powerful little device that can perform many simple operations really well, but remember as we stated in the first lesson, computers today have 1,000,000 times more RAM than a micro:bit!
• This does mean that there are limitations of what it can do.

• Discuss in pairs what you might develop for your micro:bit project

Fill in the Project Specification worksheet, starting with ideas for what you might do.

Begin to work on your project using the makecode.microbit.org website

## Plenary

Share with the class! Tell the class about your project.
