At HALB MS, student projects push STEM for society


After spending the first half of the semester learning how to code the micro bit and use it to control things, HALB eighth graders worked on a project in which they had to use the microbit to make something useful for them or society.

Projects included an exercise step counter that plays music if you stop walking to remind you to continue, a cardboard piano that really plays, a temperature alarm for an elderly home, a nightlight for a child that also plays music, a rock paper scissors game that will tell you who won, and more.

Students said they had fun and were proud of what they were able to design and create using their knowledge of coding and the microbit.
