Please Note: BBC micro:bit is NOT included.

The Kitronik Inventor's Kit 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 including using LEDs, motors, LDRs and capacitors.

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 Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the BBC micro:bit provides a fantastic way of learning how to construct and control electronic circuits. The BBC micro:bit has a selection of pins that are located on the bottom edge of its PCB (see datasheet below for details). By using our specially designed Edge Connector Board for the BBC micro:bit in conjunction with the breadboard (see below), it is easy to use these pins to connect additional components to the BBC micro:bit.

No soldering is required and you can build your first circuit in minutes!

Note:

  • This kit requires assembly.

Part of our range of micro:bit accessories and add ons, this allows you to power your micro:bit and protect it at the same time, while leaving the edge connector fully usable. This case is made up of acrylic layers and a PCB which wrap around the micro:bit leaving the edge connector exposed but giving you access to 2 AAA batteries without the need for cables..
