GIZMO-CDA is recruiting clubs, after-school programs and out-of-school organizations serving students in Grades 4-7 in Kootenai, Benewah, Shoshone & Bonner Counties to be part of a unique computer science and engineering design program based around the micro:bit.
The “Gizmo Elite Tech Training Initiative Team” or GETT_IT is a series of secret-agent themed projects designed to introduce students to the basics of coding and electronic design by completing various missions. Over the course of (10) one- to two-hour sessions, students will work with the micro:bit and Microsoft MakeCode to create computer-controlled lights, sensors, motors, secret codes and more.
Participating organizations will receive curriculum for all 10 sessions, training for program facilitators, and project materials for each student (+ an extra kit for the educator). Students will be able to keep their kits after all sessions are complete so that they can continue to learn and explore within your program or on their own.
