Our micro:bit Mission

Our Mission here at micro:bit Gadgets is to help you squeeze the most fun possible out of your new BBC micro:bit Single Board Computer. To do that we’ve collected in one place all the knowledge, tips and resources we think you’ll need to become a micro:bit wizard. Our aim is to do the hard work for you, so we’ve scoured the internet for the most fun and interesting microbit projects and gadgets around. We’ll review and adapt them on these pages and then, to help you really make progress, show you where to go online to get hold of all the essential kit you need.  And some non-essential stuff too (we mean games). Ready, set ... invent!

Who are micro:bit Gadgets?

Let’s be honest here. We’re nerds. No point hiding it -- best to get it out in the open. To put it bluntly the team here at The microbit Gadgets laboratory (shed) loves coding. We live for technology; we get excited about microprocessors. And that’s because they areexciting, because these things lie at the heart of everything from space exploration to games consoles. We believe that with modern lives now so dependent on technology, it’s alarming that as a nation we’re learning less about how the electronics in our home work than we did 20 years ago. We believe the BBC’s Micro:bit will change all that -- it’s crazily fun to use -- and for that Micro:bit, we salute you!

micro:bit Gadgets for Parents

The Micro:bit has been a little late arriving in schools. Hey, there are a million of the things, so it’s worth taking the time to make them work, right? But that means that the kids who pick these tiny computers up this spring need to carry on learning (and having fun) well into the school holidays. On the microbit Gadgets site your children can find everything they need in a safe environment, with no community pages and no comments allowed, which means no messaging with or contact from any other children or adults. Just pages and pages of cool projects and fun games, with a good slice of learning thrown in for free. Well, it’s all free, but, you know … help yourselves anyway.
