expand your micro:bit with gator:boards


The gator:boards are breakout boards created to make prototyping with alligator clips and the and micro:bit systems even easier. The gator logo on each board lets you know it is alligator clip friendly. You can even combine gator:boards with other clippable systems including LilyPad and Makey Makey.

It starts with the gator:bit


SparkFun gator:bit

The gator:boards are breakout boards created to make prototyping with alligator clips and the and micro:bit systems even easier. The gator logo on each board lets you know it is alligator clip friendly. You can even combine gator:boards with other clippable systems including LilyPad and Makey Makey.

  • No soldering required! Connect the boards with basic alligator cables.
  • Expand the capabilities of micro:bit with an ecosystem of add-on boards, carrier boards, ProtoSnaps, and kits.
  • An excellent way to learn and teach programming.
  • Compatible with Makey Makey, LilyPad, and any other board that utilizes a large clippable pad.
