DESCRIPTION

Meet micro:bit–a handheld micro-computer with huge programming possibility. Get kids started with coding cool creations, from robots to musical instruments and more. The possibilities are endless!

You can code micro:bit from any web browser in Blocks, Javascript, Python, Scratch, and more. No software required!

The mini-yet-mighty micro:bit can be used in so many ways! Use it as a standalone device for building your own games, as a "brain" for robots, as the backbone for creative circuit building, and much more.

Your micro:bit has the following physical features:

  • 25 individually-programmable LEDs for displaying text, numbers & images.
  • 2 programmable buttons, which you can detect when they're pressed, allowing you to trigger code on the device.
  • 25 external connectors on the micro:bit's edge connector, so you can program motors, LEDs, etc., or connect extra sensors to control your code!
  • Light & temperature sensors that detect ambient light and temperature.
  • Accelerometer to measure acceleration and detect other actions, e.g. shake, tilt, and free-fall.
  • Compass detects the earth's magnetic field, allowing you to detect which direction the micro:bit is facing.
  • Radio allows you to communicate wirelessly between micro:bits.
  • Bluetooth allows the micro:bit to control phones and tablets. You can also send code wirelessly from your phone using apps.

This micro:bit Starter Bundle includes the micro:bit, a USB cable, a battery pack with batteries, and starter guide. It has everything you need to get started coding. But many makerspace and other projects require additional electrical components and hardware.

To take your micro:bit experience further, check out our expansion kits from ElecFreaks. Choose the Basic, Starter, or Tinker kit and get additional electrical components and all new ways to learn coding and circuitry with your micro:bit.
