In diesem Workshop kann man unter Anleitung von Robin Baumgarten ein experimentelles Hardware-Game bauen, ganz ohne Programmierung! Unter Verwendung des BBC Micro:bit und LED-Lichtstreifen lernt man, wie man verschiedene Sensoren verwendet, damit experimentiert und ein neues, alternatives Controller-Spiel baut.

Es sind keine Programmierkenntnisse erforderlich. Bonus: Man kann das, was man gemacht hat, am Ende behalten und zu Hause damit weiter experimentieren!
