The Micro:bit has landed! The BBC has teamed up with 29 partners to offer every year 7 student in the country a free Micro:bit, a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass and Bluetooth technology. The aim is to excite and inspire future technologists, as well as enhance and develop STEM skills.
The microbit has numerous applications and can be modified to measure the moisture content of soil, acceleration of an object, visual perception, reaction speed and also be used as a simulation for molecular movement. If you want to know more, check out the bbc website about it.
We are looking forward to receiving our micro:bits in the spring term: check back here to see how we use them!
