Webinar Series - Bring Science to Life with gator:board Sensors for micro:bit

BY Megan Hemmings 10/1/19 6:29 AM

Join us for a series of webinars to learn all about how to bring middle school science to life through programming and instrumentation building using micro:bit and SparkFun's line of gator:boards.

Developed with student engagement and educators’ need for something simple in mind, SparkFun’s line of gator:boards are designed to easily expand the micro:bit’s capabilities through alligator clip connections to rapidly and easily add sensors to any project.


Through this three part webinar series, you will discover fun and exciting ways to utilize gator:boards plus micro:bit to bring science to life and engage students in deeper learning.

All webinars will be held on Wednesdays at 3pm MT (2pm PT/5pm ET). A link will be sent to everyone who registers in case  you are unable to join live.
