The micro:bit was created by BBC to help teach coding to people. This kit is set up as an introduction to electronics. The patrons will learn how to program the micro:bit to control a LED light, and learn how to wire the micro:bit and light together correctly. These kits are a fun interactive way to introduce STEAM concepts at the comfort of our patron's home.
