Using Micro:bit to control TapeBlocks
Connecting TapeBlock to Micro:bit using the pins, banana plugs and conductive tape. A gentle and fun introduction to physical programming.
Micro:bit is a great way to introduce programming. Being able to program physical objects is really powerful for introducing computing beyond the screen. With a banana plug cable, wire cutter/strippers it is possible to create TapeBlocks that will connect to the pins on the Micro:bit. Then they can be programmed using the vast learning resources that have been developed for the Micro:bit which provide drag and drop programming or various coding options.
