It has many features including 25 red LED lights that can be used to flash messages, can detect motion and tell you which direction you are travelling in. The micro:bit uses a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet.

This workshop, facilitated by leading creative media arts centre, the Nerve Centre, will introduce participants to coding and how the micro:bit works, how to transfer code before creating a digital pet using the micro:bit and crafts.

This fun, educational event is free to attend and spaces are limited. To book your place please contact Newry City Library on telephone 028 3026 4683 or email
