The sign-up deadline for this event has passed.
In the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Computer Science for Innovators and Makers unit, middle school students learn about programming both hardware and software, and how to combine them to create interactive systems. After learning to program a micro:bit, students apply that knowledge to create an LED blinking sign to share a message of their choosing.
Spend a few hours reviewing projects online and sharing written feedback with students, all through our online portal.
