My students need Microbits coding platform in order to see a physical manifestation of their lines of code

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are between 15 and 18 years old. They are from diverse backgrounds and academic skill levels. They are enrolled in my AP Computer Science Principles class and are looking to create some hands on coding projects for their Advanced Placement projects.
My students love to solve real world problems using computer science .
They also like to learn with hands-on projects that are student oriented. There are a few minorities in my class - girl students, African American, and Hispanic students.
My students always look to find a physical way to showcase their learning. My computer science class is getting ready to do their Advanced Placement assessments, where they have to create projects independently. These microbit coding platforms will help energize my students by giving them a new and innovative platform to code in.
Students can either use a drag and drop technology or a software with lines of code woth the microbots.
This is easily adapted for students of varying skill levels.
Students find it exciting when they can see how lines of code can control sounds, lights, and this will engage my students to a greater degree.
