Announcing the Micro:bit Mother's Day Challenge!

Comment la carte micro:bit peut aider les mères et les aides dans le monde à avoir une journée meilleure et facile?

Avouons-le, les Mamans et Carers du monde entier sont géniaux. 365 jours par an les Mamans veillent à ce que leur famille aille bien et qu'il ne leur manque rien. Elle sont très occupées, ingénieuses. En guise de reconnaissance la fête des mère est célébrée dans plus de 46 pays à travers le monde. Ce jour là, les gens expriment leur amour et leur reconnaissance aux Mamans pour tout ce qu'elles font. Les gens de la Fondation Micro:bit aiment bien les gens qui s'occupent d'elles, et ont pensaient à: comment la carte micro:bit pourrait rendre la journée de mères et des aides meilleure ? Dès qu'on s'est posé la question on a su qui pourrait y répondre - L'ensemble des inventeurs de la micro:bit ici.

Donc, le nouveau Challenge Micro:bit est un "Challenge Micro:bit pour les mères et les aides”. We have three challenges for you to choose from and we will be offering prizes for the best inventions. So, the Micro:bit Foundation Mother’s and Carers Challenges are:

  • Challenge 1: How could you use the micro:bit to tell your Mother or Carer how much you love them and appreciate all the things they do?
  • Challenge 2: How could the micro:bit make your own Mother’s or Carer’s day easier? Think about all the jobs they have to do during a day, could a micro:bit invention help them do those?
  • Challenge 3: In some places in the world, for example where water or food or electricity is difficult to get, looking after your family is not an easy job. How could the micro:bit help Mothers and Carers in those places do the things they need to do? Think about people who get their water from water pumps, where electricity or the Internet is not always available so they cook on fires or rely on solar power or use mobile phones to access the Internet. How could a micro:bit invention help them?
