Eltham College Scholars Programme

No dice!

Year 8 Scholars enjoyed a session programming microbits on Thursday under the expert guidance of computing teacher Ms Jay Muirhead. Some of the students had familiarity with the technology, and those that didn’t picked it up very quickly.

By the end of the session the students had programmed messages to appear on the press of a button, an image of the face of a die, complete with spots, when the microbit was shaken and a programme allowing a game of rock paper scissors to take place.

The lesson forms part of the Scholars Programme which includes workshops and lectures overseen by our Head of Academic Scholarship, Mr Cavendish.
