Description

Containing 1x micro:bit and a Quick Start Guide in a single retail pack, this is the ideal option for makers to get started creating BBC micro:bit projects and inventing solutions (requires a USB cable for programming purposes, and a battery holder & 2x AAA batteries to power your BBC micro:bit if not connected to your computer - sold separately). The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go - all you need is imagination and creativity. The micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The micro:bit has a website full of coding languages, lesson plans, tutorials, and fun ideas.

Funny sign, but also many comments. Without Pin: bit Breadboard breakout almost unusable, the crocodile basin system is a joke. Nice that compass / gyro / thermo is included, but lack of headers is still a big problem. With the online "blockly" system, you quickly reach limits. A lot is not possible at first sight (other types of variables, faster LED scrolling, etc.), and if you then drag something into something or adjust javascript, more is possible, but then you can never go back to block mode. Also uploading via .hex file is no faster than compiling in Arduino IDE, and you miss the compile error check. Adafruit M0 Metro Express is a much more useful alternative, unfortunately it is not yet here in the store, this is usually also slightly cheaper. In principle you can work reasonably profi with this with ArduinoIDE or python, but the approach of BBC for 11 year olds is too simple. If they offer this for 8-9 year olds that is fine, but at an older age the block system is too restrictive. If you want to work with it low-level, pay attention that the LED matrix works very strange. It is not what you expect a 5x5 matrix, but a 3x9 matrix with a weird pagination.
