A simple counter (press A to increase, B to decrease) for the micro:bit, displaying the current number as binary. Very soothing.


Level: Intermediate

Duration: Probably a couple of lessons, depending on experience

Teaches: input, output, binary representation, binary conversion, error trapping, repetition
