    Part 1 - micro:bit block commands used in the Ferris Wheel 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:



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

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


    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.
