BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass and Bluetooth technology. They were given free to every child in year 7 or equivalent across the UK in 2016, with the aim of inspiring 12-13 year-olds to get creative and develop core skills in science, technology and engineering. It's a great way to explore the Key Stage 3 and National 4 ICT curriculum, and introduce your students to coding. You can find more detailed information about what the micro:bit is and what the key features are here.
We at Team micro:bit have been pleased to bring you more than a year of micro:bit experiments, activities and entertainment, so we decided what better way to show our appreciation than to get in touch with our robotics buddies and cause a little havoc?
Making robots with the micro:bit has been one of our favourite activities and it can be a lot easier than you think. Find our more here.
