In a world being transformed by technology, developing young peoples digital skillset is now more important than ever before. The Maker Champion challenges aims to help young people develop essential skills for the future, empowering them to achieve more for themselves, their families and their communities.
As part of Microsoft’s Digital Skills Programme, the Maker Champion challenges are a series of activities that encourage students from 7-14 to solve problems and bring about change by shaping the technologies of tomorrow. These challenges encourage young people to design and make something that responds to real world challenges. It allows them to utilise their computational thinking, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity skill sets.
We will be running the Maker of Change Road Safety activity which challenges students to use BBC Micro:Bit and computational thinking to model an idea that improves road safety outside of their school.
