A collaboration between 29 partners, the BBC micro:bit is the BBC’s most ambitious education initiative in 30 years, with an ambition to inspire digital creativity and develop a new generation of tech pioneers.

The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer to let you get creative with digital technology. You can code, customize and control your micro:bit from anywhere.

Light up the led display to create something simple in minutes or even communicate between micro:bits or get really creative with micro:bit more advanced features like its buttons, motion detector, compass, and sensors.

You can create a guitar that changes the volume the more you shake it or flick football games that power the micro:bit scoreboard and you can connect it with other devices, sensors, and everyday objects.

So you can water your thirsty plants, or use Bluetooth to take photos with your phone and control your music player and you can customize the micro:bit in anyway you can imagine.


it’s really anything you want it to be!
