What is BBC micro:bit?

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.

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 programmeable 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. Built-in Low Energy Bluetooth connectivity enables the 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.
