The projects in this kit combine multiple disciplines -- electronics, programming, and engineering -- but no prior experience is necessary.



Do Cool Stuff with Electronics and Learn How to Code! 

Learn how to program the micro:bit microcontroller with easy-to-use block code, and build your own amazing electronics projects. With this kit you'll use the micro:bit to make scrolling name tags, a high-tech compass, handheld tilting games, electronic musical instrument, a wheeled robot, lots more!

You'll learn how to create electronic circuits using resistors, LEDs, infrared distance sensors, motor drivers, and soil moisture sensors, and you'll incorporate electric devices such as speakers, motors, and fans into your projects.

The projects in this kit combine multiple disciplines -- electronics, programming, and engineering -- but no prior experience is necessary. You'll learn the concepts of programming with a simple visual block-building program, and you'll also get a sneak peek at the more powerful MicroPython programming language.

Everything is explained with lots and lots of full-color line drawings. You'll have fun while you learn a ton!
