What is the BBC micro:bit?

The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website (www.microbit.co.uk) that can be accessed from a PC, tablet, or mobile.

.

A collaboration between 31 partners, the BBC micro:bit is the BBC's most ambitious education initiative in 30 years, with an ambition to inspire digital creativity and develop a new generation of tech pioneer. element14 have provided support with the design, cost optimisation and manufacturing of the board, and are proud to be making the BBC micro:bit available to purchase for all friends, families, clubs, organisations and schools to own them.

.

It's a small, codable device that can be programmed to light up using a series of tiny LEDs. A non-intimidating introduction to programming and making - switch on, program it to do something fun - wear it, customise it, develop new ideas.

.

BBC Micro:bit combines a pocket-sized coding device featuring several sensors and LED's with a website full of coding languages, helping you get creative - from making your own games to taking selfies, the possibilities are endless.

.

There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The BBC micro:bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you are heading in. Build-in Low Energy Bluetooth connectivity enables the BBC micro:bit to interact with other devices and the internet.

BBC micro:bit is a BBC initiative to get kids in the UK coding. A royalty from the sale of this BBC micro:bit merchandise helps promote digital creativity amongst young people in the UK.
