What is the Micro:bit?
The Micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. It is an educational tool that was developed in the UK by the BBC to support students and teachers with learning how to code. Fair Chance Learning is a proud partner with the Micro:bit foundation and is an official distributer of this device.
A perfect starter kit, the Micro:bit go contains all the pieces needed to get started creating and coding (contains 1x Micro:bits, 1x USB cables, 1x battery holder and 2x AAA batteries).
- 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.
- On-board motion detector or 3-Axis digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt, or free-fall and use it to control motion activated games.
- 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 everyday 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 controller.
- 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 3x I/O. The micro:bit can read values from sensors and control things like motors or robots.
