What’s a micro:bit?
The BBC micro:bit is a handheld, programmable micro-computer. It comes in a plastic wallet with a Quick Start guide and a USB lead. There’s also a battery pack in case you want to run the micro:bit away from your computer.
What can I do with it?
Get cracking by putting together some simple routines that flash in various patterns or to display a scrolling message across the LED display built into the micro:bit. Once you’ve got the basics of coding using the built-in tutorials you’ll be able to use the micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations from robots to musical instruments. The possibilities are endless!
