The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customize and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go – all you need is imagination and creativity. The BBC micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The BBC micro:bit has a website full of coding languages, lesson plans and tutorials.
Perfect for sharing the BBC micro:bit with friends, the BBC micro:bit club is a 10 pack containing all the pieces needed to enjoy BBC micro:bit in STEM groups, coding clubs, school classes, scouts, guides and cubs or any other social gathering.
Note: your micro:bit will come in one of 4 colours and it is not possible to guarantee which colour you will receive.
