Activity 1 and 2 – Getting started and programming the buttons – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R35SMos28wQ Extra help if you are struggling to move the file over to your Microbit – https://youtu.be/lce_cKlz1u0 Activity 3 – Making a simple animation – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMS_ahi7PB8 Activity 4 and 5 – Making a more complex animation and using looping commands – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDVNXvGpP6w Activity 6 – Make a light meter – https://youtu.be/rxaTmZDUNYs Activity 7 – Make a night light – https://youtu.be/J8gURPVH8iw TIP: When making your night light, make sure your Microbit is on a flat surface and that you have electric lights switched on overhead to really get the best effect. When using light coming from the side (e.g. the window) the Microbit tends to cast a shadow over itself if it is tilted slightly away from the window and may cause your light to come on when you don’t want it to.
