Please try the suggested task below.

 

Task 

Bring the cable car up and down.  What else can you do ?  May be add a button, add some sounds??

 

 

The following is only a sample code.    Code for the cable cars will follow later.

Part 1 - micro:bit block commands used in the Barrier Model

To achieve fluency and competency in micro:bit coding, you really need to get a thorough understanding of each of the block catagories to be used in the Barrier Model (see part 2 below for the full code).    Fortunately, all the reference guides are available on the BBC micro:bit web site for you to get a deeper and more comprehensive understanding and mastery.

Through this Barrier Model you can learn, practise, build fluency and confidence in coding.

The Barrier Model used the following micro:bit blocks.  You can click to lean more about each of the block catagories.  The links bring you directly to the respective part of the BBC micro:bit reference document site, where live codes are included for you to understand, try, and download:

Basic (basic micro:bit functions and actions):  On Start, Show LED, Pause

Input (events and inputs from sensors):   On Button Pressed

Loops:   While Loop (repeat code while a Boolean condition is true)

Logic:  If (conditionally run code depending on whether a Boolean condition is true or false)

Pins (Control currents in Pins for analog/digital signals, servos, i2c,...) :   Digital Write Pin, Digital Read Pin,

 

Part 2   The "live" Barrier Code  - Understand, Edit and Download

  The following code has used all the mentioned blocks in Part 1 above.    

 

1.    Comments In English, click the " ? " on block to find out the comment (meaning) of the block code.

  • If you read this page on a computer with wider screen size, you will be able to see the micro:bit simulator that is fully clickable.
  • If you cannot see the code, such as on a mobile phone, please  click this link instead.
  • Click   to open the code on the micro:bit website for further editing and modification.
  • Click   to download this code to your micro:bit for immediate use or to save on your computer.     

 

 2.  Comments in English - to follow shortly.
