DESCRIPTION

Use this ElecFreaks micro:bit Starter Kit with your micro:bit to more deeply explore coding and circuits! To dive into more than 10 exciting activities with this micro:bit Starter Kit, you'll first need the micro:bit Bundle.

This Starter Kit includes electronic components like LEDs, a button, a buzzer, a temperature sensor, a servo, a motor, a fan and more. It's the perfect combination of fun and creativity as you learn new coding and electronics skills!

To begin your exploration of the electronics world, connect your micro:bit to the included breadboard adapter and breadboard. The included instructions show you how to code the device using block coding, like MakeCode or Scratch. This kit is perfect for beginners, but more advanced coders can replicate the same programs using a more complex language if desired (ex. JavaScript, Python, etc.). This kit requires two AAA batteries, which are included in our micro:bit Bundle. If you did not get the HST micro:bit bundle, you'll need to supply your own batteries.

Need some help getting started with your micro:bit or block coding? Check out these excellent micro:bit quick start tips from its creator! And take a look at our other kits for more coding practice and fun: ElecFreaks Basic Kit and Tinker Kit


Want a few project ideas?

Beginner:

  • Start with a project to program your micro:bit to make two LEDs twinkle - choose red and blue LEDs and make your own police lights!
  • Next, program your micro:bit and build the circuits to use buttons, a potentiometer and a photocell.

Intermediate:

  • Build your own temperature sensor - which reads the temperature on the micro:bit display.

Advanced:

  • Create a rainbow light display with the included LED rainbow ring.
