Mario Kart Micro:bit


This workshop was developed by Digital Schoolhouse together with Chris Lovell, Head of Computing at Ashfold School, to incorporate computing into the curriculum in an innovative way.

In this workshop pupils will code the micro:bit to show animations to Mario Kart racers as they drive around a racetrack. The workshop starts by pupils creating their animation ideas on paper. Pupils then code their animations on the micro:bit, and then they use the micro:bit’s radio functionality to broadcast their animations to several micro:bits.
