Tackle time and space with Doctor Who and the BBC micro:bit

The Doctor Who Team

From Monday 24th April, Doctor Who will be taking over schools across the UK in a special Doctor Who and the micro:bit mission… The Daleks want to destroy the universe with a Reality Bomb and the Doctor needs your help if there's to be any chance of stopping them!

Children up and down the country recently helped the Doctor save Earth from a supernova shock wave in our Doctor Who and the micro:bit Live Lesson, but he now needs our help once again. The Doctor will set three weekly missions that will challenge 11 to 13 year olds to use their courage, inventiveness and Key Stage 3 computing skills to save the universe from this new threat.

The missions will go live on 24th April, 2nd May and 8th May, with teacher resources and lesson plans available in advance. The micro:bit is fun to use both in and out of the classroom - designing code and building gadgets are great ways to build a better understanding of ICT and electronics as well as giving computational thinking skills a boost.

Check out the Make It Digital website to get all the information and teaching resources for Doctor Who and the micro:bit and make sure you're prepared to help the Doctor save the universe!
