The microbit was released by the BBC in July 2016 and was designed to inspire a generation of 1 million UK school children to learn how to code. The device is perfect for the classroom; that’s why we’re offering the microbit Club – a kit designed specifically for the classroom. It is an ideal kit for introducing students to the wonderful world of coding and hardware.
