The Micro:bit and the App project!

On the 7th of October 2017, I went to Girls Only Dojo, the second of a series, hosted by Macquarie Group in Moorgate.
The workshops I took part in were:

  • Micro:bit
  • Design an app

First, I started with Micro:bit! The objective was to program the micro:bit so that when I pressed a button, it displayed my name followed by flashing lights! To give me some support, one of the mentors helped me to understand what my code meant! The finished product looked great! I would like to do more micro:bit related projects in the future!

After I completed my micro:bit project, I moved onto “Design an app”. I started off by choosing the theme to base my app on and a user group (the people who would use this type of app).
In the end I chose a theme about how to stay healthy!  Next, I thought about the different categories my app would include. I chose the following sections:

A recommendation section on  healthy fruit options;

A section about remembering to brush your teeth and how important it is;

A section on how to brush your teeth correctly.

To begin with, I created sketches of the different features of my app and  followed the step by step instructions!  Later these sketches were uploaded &  used to help bring my app to life, with an app builder called “Marvel”.

As we were approaching to the end of the Coder Dojo session, I had the chance to show my work to everyone and to see what they thought of my idea. Everybody gave me a round of applause and I felt very proud of myself on what I achieved.

I could not wait until the next time I would go to another  CoderDojo workshop!

Overall, I really had enjoyed my time. I think I spent my time well on the things I was interested in and what I felt like doing! This was the end of an amazing day at the CoderDojo Girls Only at Moorgate!
