Micro:bit : Create code. Get Started. The micro:bit Global Challenge – the winners! We had hundreds of amazing entries to the micro:bit Global Challenge from all over the world.
Thank you to everyone who entered and for all the effort you put in to your fantastic devices. What is the Global Challenge? In 2015, world leaders came together to decide on a series of "global goals" to build a better world. We challenged students aged 8-12 across the globe to consider how these goals could change the lives of themselves and others, and to design solutions to these goals using the micro:bit. Supported by a number of delivery partners, our Global Challenge competition saw hundreds of entries from a diverse range of countries cultures, and backgrounds.
We are excited to announce the winners of the Global Challenge 2018! The Global Challenge will return... do your :bit coming soon! We'll be updating this page regularly with news and updates as they happen. Make and code activities, projects and apps to learn about technology. Free Platform for Coding, Making and Inventing.

Favorited Favorite 0 Last week, I showed you how to boot up the micro:bit and put some simple graphics on the LED array. Today we’ll continue with Microsoft’s MakeCode block editor to make something that approximates a simple Magic 8 Ball. In case you don’t remember the Magic 8 Ball from your youth, it’s a plastic toy that has a 20-sided die with various messages suspended in blue liquid. You ask it a “yes” or “no” question, shake it and turn it over. The micro:bit contains an onboard accelerometer that we can read, and the drag-and-drop editor has several predefined functions for us, including the ability to tell whether the board was shaken.
One of the neat features of MakeCode is that it can import and decipher special codes stored in the .hex files generated from MakeCode.
