Perfect for learning to code in a hurry!

This Micro:Bit kit is awesome! The MIcro:Bits are small so they are the perfect size for physical computing projects. I got started with them over the weekend and by Monday morning I was ready to start a project with my high school students in Python. They will be coding LEDs for Christmas decorations. The tiny Micro:Bit and battery pack fit perfectly on the back of the decoration without being seen from the front.

My elementary school kids will be using the Micro:Bits in the future. With MakeCode and Scratch programming for the younger kids, and Python for the high school students, Micro:Bits fit a wide variety of coding needs. I couldn't be happier!

Terrific Tool to Bring Coding to Life!

I have only just begun utilizing the micro:bit boards that comprise this kit, but already I can see the great potential from bringing coding into the physical world and igniting students' curiosity and drive to solve problems. These little boards contain a great variety of sensors and the LED light grid is a terrific way for students to learn how to control a display and provides a way for students to visually see their code running on the board. I highly recommend this well-thought-out tool for bringing coding to life in the physical world.
