STEM Education Support

Kulicke and Soffa (www.kns.com) and Philadelphia Section of the IEEE (https://r2.ieee.org/philadelphia/ ) are proud to announce partnering with the Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School to provide “Microbits” and hardware specific technical assistance  to the computer specialist at the school.  “Microbits” are pocket sized computers that are designed to introduce students to how hardware and software work together. Students can program the Microbit using block programming, a graphical, rather than text based language to control on-board hardware such as the accelerometer, magnetometer,  speaker, capacitive sensors and LED display. Students can program the Microbit to create a rock-paper-scissors game,  measure walking distance, display temperature, react to touch and button presses, control a technicolor led string, and play music.

Ashley Marshall, Mary McLeod Bethune’s computer specialist, is excited to provide the hardware to the kids in her computer classes and let them discover how fun programming can be.

If your organization would like to support and fund other schools please reach out to the section office at ieee@gpamg.org
