BBC Micro:bit

Digital Maker CIC are proud to use the BBC Micro:bit in many of our #physicalComputing workshops. We love its simplicity & power, especially when you can expand the GPIO pins with a breakout board, we happen to use the Kitronik “edge connector” kit. Using the Microsoft “MakeCode” IDE, it’s quick and easy to get going with drag & drop coding, or #javaScript in the browser, or as a downloaded app.

The wide range of BB Micro:bits & equipment on Kitronik is fantastic, we highly recommend you visit their site & get making with the micro:bit today!

We often upload hints & tips and “inspiration” videos on our youTube channel, please check it out & let us know what you think!

Our good friend @raspKidd runs the fantastic magazine Micro:mag too – a free, downloadable PDF jammed with loads of micro:bit tips, news, ideas and more!
