Course Outcomes

Create 'N' Code teaches the fundamentals of electricity & circuits, programming, and fabrication, serving as an introduction to how these three maker skills can be integrated to form fun cohesive projects. Throughout the course, students will build their own "smart" house and wire it up to a mini-computer that they can code to open a skylight, make fun sounds and even light their name upon an LED display. Their projects will be built around the Micro:bit system, a beginner-friendly circuit board that can be programmed for all sorts of uses.
