Hour of Code™

Participate in the Hour of Code with CodeSpace!

Get your micro:bit ready, and level-up to Python coding! CodeSpace™ will guide you step-by-step from writing your very first line of Python to coding a fully working interactive program with buttons and LEDs.

  • Learn the basics of writing code for embedded devices
  • Monitoring inputs and controlling outputs!
  • Slow things down a bit with the “sleep” function
  • Learn how “variables” and “if” statements control the flow of code.

The project ends with a game that will test just how fast you can press those micro-buttons! But that’s only the beginning. Remix the skills you’ll learn in this project, and there’s no limit to your coding adventures with Python and Physical Computing!

It's FREE, with no signup required!
  (You will need an existing Google account to store your files.)

If you already have a micro:bit, you're moments away from a fantastic new way to learn text-based coding! If you need to purchase a kit, head on over to our Products page and we'll get you going!
