Micro:bit by BBC has become the heart of countless creative digital technology projects around the world and a trusted educational learning system. This tiny programmable platform teaches through invention. Learn to code, design animated LED games, interface with sensors, all on the one board. Micro:bit users have full access to the BBC micro:bit website where fresh lesson plans are shared along with tutorials and tips for everyone be you educators, parents, workshop coordinators or just an aspiring maker.

The Micro:bit is easy to code with, all you need is your web browser and a micro USB cable and you are ready to start all kinds of exciting STEM/STEAM experiments, no need for any extra software to be installed.

Micro:bit has also developed a mobile app for coding over Bluetooth (without a USB cable), that makes it even easier to get everyone coding with hardware.

Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up and can display animated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
Two programmable buttons. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smart phone
On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt or free-fall
A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you're facing and your movement in degrees and detect the presence of certain metals and magnets
Bluetooth® Smart Technology. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and other everday objects
20 pin edge connector: This allows the micro:bit to be connected to other devices such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Galileo and Kano through a standard connector
Micro-USB controller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick
Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR), ground (GRD) and 3 x I/O.
