Tree protectors – Meet and code event

On 9th October Dig-Ed organizes a Meet and code event “Tree Protectors”.

During the event students from two primary schools: “Strasho Pindjur”, Negotino and “Krste Misirkov”, Skopje worked together on finding solution for preventing illegal cut of the trees. They used micro:bit as their tool.  Teachers: Gjorgjina Dimova and Maja Videnovich.

The solution they created was this: one micro:bit was programmed to alarm by sending radio message with the location every time a tree is cut. Another micro:bit receives the message and shows the authorities where is the location of the illegal cut.

Students learned about radio used for communication between the microbit, and different sensors.

This event was part of the action: Code for the planet.

Meet and code is organized and supported by SAP, Haus des Stiftens gGmbH, TechSoup Europe and Metamorphosis in Macedonia.
