#ICE19 workshop “Code & Create with Microsoft MakeCode!” #msftedu #adafruit @ice_il @cmostyn @kjcatena @sfhs_spartans @MSMakeCode

"Code & Create with Microsoft MakeCode!"

ICE19 will be held February 25-28, 2019 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center, Schaumburg, Illinois USA. The ICE Conference will feature four full days of sessions this year with conference strands including Leadership, Library Media & Learning Spaces, Professional Learning & Coaching, Special Education & ESL/ELL, and Teaching & Learning.

There is a spotlight workshop on February 26th: “Code & Create with Microsoft MakeCode!”

Using a combination of the Microsoft MakeCode app and the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, students can let loose a storm of creativity to build their own coding projects! Participants will not only learn the basics of coding, but will also be able to participate in a hands on “maker session” (lead by students!) to create their own, unique, coding creation.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
