This is the final blog in the series on using Workbench. In this blog, we look at using the programming canvas to read and write multiple sets of data to a spreadsheet by incorporating a conditional loop.

This blog post will show you how to create a chart that can show real-time data using the programming canvass in Workbench #googleedu #workbenchedu Click To Tweet


Because we can read and write data via code, we are also able to collect data from external devices like a micro:bit. By incorporating data validation and charts, we can write code to read and write multiple sets of data and then display this in a live-updating chart.

In this 10:08 minute video, you will learn how to read and write multiple sets of data, use data validation to control the sample size and use multiple variables and blocks in the programming canvass expanding on what has been shown the previous posts. Click to watch the video.
