Latest micro:bit programme supports 2,400 secondary schools in Norway

By eeNews Europe

The initiative will provide a classroom technology kit to each of the 2,400 secondary schools in Norway, over two years, starting in September 2019. The kits have an interactive smart city theme, which will allow pupils to learn to use the micro:bit through applications such as planning traffic flow using sensors to control traffic lights. The kits, shipped by Farnell, include micro:bits, robots, and other electronic and non-electronic components.


To further support the use of micro:bit as a tool in schools, Farnell will sponsor the first annual gathering of the global micro:bit community of educators and partners on 4th and 5th October in Manchester. micro:bit Live 2019 is intended to further the micro:bit Educational Foundation’s mission to inspire every child and is an opportunity for all those involved in educational initiatives and partnerships to share their experiences, tips and best practices.
