**Young Coders** Mission to Mars Rover Microbit Radio Control
2019-09-14, 10:15–11:00, Ferrier Hall

This workshop utilises rovers used in Software Cornwall's work experience.


This workshop utilises rovers used in Software Cornwall's work experience. Instead of Arduinos the rovers have a Microbit hacked in utilising the radio capabilities. Students, in pairs, have to program another Microbit as the radio control for the rover. Basic code is given to get the rover moving forwards but they have to create the rest of the other movements themselves.
The exercise takes about 45 minutes depending on experience. Those students that finish early are asked to help those who haven't completed.
