Get coding with Micro:bits

 

With LEDs that can scroll messages or display pictures, programmable buttons and motion detectors you can code the Micro:bit to do all sorts of things from music to robots to games

 

And from 7 July 2018, you can borrow them FREE for up to 3 weeks with your library ticket (8 years and over)

 

Inside the box is the Micro:bit, USB cable and a battery pack.

 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a computer, you can program the Micro:bit from an app on your phone or tablet and download the code via Bluetooth.
