Kitronik Inventors Kit for the BBC micro:bit - Python version
The Kitronik Inventor's Kit - Python version for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the BBC micro:bit. This Inventor's Kit contains everything you need to complete 10 experiments. To get you off to a flying start, we have included an easy-to-follow tutorial book which guides you through everything you will need to know about programming the BBC micro:bit. You don't need any experience with programming as the tutorial book will guide you every step of the way. You'll be programming and creating circuits in no time!
The tutorial offers step-by-step guides to all 10 experiments. Experiments 1 - 6 are coded with MakeCode Blocks and experiments 7 - 10 are coded with the MakeCode Python editor.
The BBC micro:bit has a selection of pins that are located on the bottom edge of its PCB. By using our specially designed Edge Connector Board for the BBC micro:bit in conjunction with the breadboard, it is easy to use these pins to connect additional components to the BBC micro:bit.
This kit is available as a single pack or as a pack of 20 for the classroom.
Inventors Kit Add-On Packs:
On its own, the Kitronik Inventors Kit offers a great introduction to the world of physical computing. . But why stop there?
The three add-on packs for the inventors kit have been specifically devised to introduce you to these aspects of practical physical computing.
