Coding with micro:bit
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world. The new micro:bit with sound adds a built-in microphone and speaker, as well as an extra touch input button and a power button.
BBC micro:bit–the next gen, is a new partnership between BBC Education, The micro:bit Educational Foundation and Nominet. The campaign aims to empower primary school children aged 8 to 11 with the digital skills to understand the world around them and shape their futures.
