Event description

Description

Learn a little bit about electronics using the BBC micro:bit (yes, that BBC!). The micro:bit is a small development board packed with an array of 25 LEDs, a Bluetooth radio, and much more. We’ll be using them in pairs to detect if
another micro:bit is close by and respond. Come by if you’re interested in electronics, programming, and/or the “Internet of Things”!

This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest, a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship and discovery around the University of Chicago. With more than 40 events scheduled across Chicago and in other key cities around the world, we welcome you to join us as we explore solutions to big problems, brainstorm ways to scale impact, and connect with leaders in business, science, healthcare, tech, and more.

This annual festival is led by UChicago’s top leaders in innovation, including the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Institute for Translational Medicine, the Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth, and the Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories. Innovation Fest is sponsored by the University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
