Esmes' Electronics is a simple introduction to using the micro:bit written by a year 5 student.
Learn with Troy by asking for support and, he will post a tutorial here to benefit all of our visitors. Free advice!
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!
All of the experiments included in this booklet (listed below) are based on the Microsoft BlockEditor and Microsoft TouchDevelop editor software. We have also produced a MicroPython code example for each of the experiments and Video resources featuring a walk-through and hints and tips to help you complete the experiments.
