Can you help solve a problem in your community by using the BBC micro:bit?You could win an all-expenses-paid trip to London to take part in the amazing micro:bit Global Challenge day and start to make a real difference in the world!
This could be a device that will encourage people to get active and stay healthy. It could be a recipe plan to help your family eat well. Could you help people decide which exercise would suit them best?
Or perhaps you and your friends need some more lights for your bikes that start working when the sun sets? Is crossing the road a problem at your school? Could there be a system that helps make it safe? Is there a device that helps prevent bullying at school?
Whatever the issue is, we’re interested to hear how you would go about solving it. The micro:bit can do so many things so use your imagination and be as creative as possible!
Don’t worry if the problem you want to work on seems small. Remember that small changes can have a big impact!
The competition is open to young people across the world aged 8-12. You may work in a team or as an individual on the challenge. Unfortunately only one person will be able to travel to the Global Challenge finale event, so make sure you discuss this with any team mates in advance. The competition is free to enter and you don’t even have to have a micro:bit to take part. If you’ve got an idea, put it down on paper or use the Let’s Code page. We’ll accept photos of your plans, too. For full competition details and rules, please read the Terms and Conditions.
第三站是MIT Media Lab。這裡大概是一天行程中，所有學生印象最深刻的經歷！因為我們特別情商目前在MIT Media Lab的Biomechatronics Leg Lab內，全球知名生物機電跨域整合義肢實驗室計畫主持人Hugh Herr門下，來自台灣的優秀學生謝宗翰，分享他在實驗室內關於仿生義肢、輔具、生物力學、肌肉骨骼系統及神經科學的研究，並帶領所有師生入實驗室內參訪。更感人的是參訪後，謝宗翰分享他一路的求學經歷與人生觀。
