New to coding? Don’t worry. This kit comes with a booklet covering 10+1 hands-on coding lessons, which have been creatively structured to introduce programming basics in a fun and engaging manner. Each chapter features a classic childhood game such as Rock Paper Scissors, Snakes and Ladders, Twister, and Simon Says. Follow the step-by-step guide to build the games and then have fun playing with your friends! *Game accessories are provided in this kit.
At the end of each chapter, there is a challenge which requires you to apply what you’ve learned to build a useful application for your classroom. Give it a try and if you’re stuck, we’re always here to help you. You can go to our online Resource Hub for sample codes and extra resources.
We’re passionate about eliminating the language barrier and let every kid have access to this guide book in their mother tongue. Thanks to volunteers all around the globe, EDU:BIT guide book in the following languages are now available for download (in PDF format):
If you’d also like to volunteer to translate this book into another language, we welcome you to get in touch with us. Email to email@example.com.
Start having fun with EDU:BIT right out of the box. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays melody with the press of a button. No wiring required when used as a training kit.
Cannot control servo motor and play music at the same time on your micro:bit? Servo motor refuses to move correctly? Worry no more! EDU:BIT takes care of these issues with its dedicated controller and power supply. It can even support up to 3 servo motors and 2 DC motors to actuate any creative projects you will build.
Each feature and its associated micro:bit IO pin is clearly labeled on the board for easy reference. In addition, indicator LEDs are built in on EDU:BIT to ease troubleshooting for both digital and analog IO pins.
Ready to build your own projects? You can break off the modules on EDU:BIT board for more flexibility in your project design. Plug-and-play cables are provided for you to connect the broken off Bits to the main board.
Last but not least, we even provide a special space on EDU:BIT for you to write your name. Get yours today!
