Micro:Bit--Meet&Make

Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield 241 West Mill Road , Northfield, NJ (map)

• What we'll do

micro:bits are microcontrollers that were designed to be an on ramp utilizing coding to control hardware.

It has an accelerometer so it can detect motion and knows when you're on the move. The built-in compass knows which direction you're heading in and it can use a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet.

Our meetup will give participants an opportunity to code and explore controlling speakers and servos.

• What to bring

If possible, participants should bring laptops to supplement the laptops we have available
