    In this three-week course, students will be introduced to the Python programming language. They will explore computer science and the art of computer programming by using the BBC MicroBit, a credit-card sized computer with built-in sensors and wireless communication. Students will learn about concepts such as loops, variables, sensors, actuators, conditionals, and
    Bluetooth radio through a series of fun individual and group projects, such as a plant watering system, a simulation of fireflies, water sensing system, water and air pollution
    detector and more. For the final project, students will work in small teams to create an original project of their own choosing that has personal or community value. The project
    work will happen within a structured process that includes using Design Thinking to identify project requirements, development of collaboration skills, daily check-ins and journaling with
    peer/instructor/mentor feedback, and a final exhibition
