Environment Maker Challenge: Day 5 with David Pride

Thanks so much everyone for tuning in today to David Pride’s brilliant Miocro:bit masterclass – and for completing the first week of our Environment Making Challenge! I know that we at SERAS learned a huge amount in the session today – and I expect that everybody else did too.

David really helped reminding us that coding is for everyone; he did a great job demystifying the jargon behind computing and inspired us all with his stories of how Making can change your life. It’s great to think that from lesson one in Micro:bit, you can soon be doing a computing PhD. As for his marvellous Maker Ukulele, wow! Thanks David! See you all next week.
