A Kickstarter success story and now available to buy, this beginner-friendly micro:bit kit is specially designed to encourage kids to explore STEAM and learn to code.

Note: This kit does not include micro:bit board, but you can grab one here.

You can easily program the EDU:BIT using the open-source Microsoft MakeCode Editor. Just add the EDU:BIT MakeCode Extension and you’re good to go.

If you’re a beginner, you can start with the block programming mode; simply drag, drop and snap the coding blocks together. For more advanced users, you can easily switch into JavaScript or Python mode on MakeCode Editor for text-based programming.

EDU:BIT Board Features

New! You can now add WiFi connectivity to your EDU:BIT with the optional Grove WiFi 8299 IoT add-on!

Great for Beginners!

New to coding? Don’t worry! This kit comes with a booklet covering 10 hands-on coding lessons and a bonus lesson, which have been creatively structured to introduce programming basics in a fun and engaging manner.

Each chapter features a classic childhood game such as Rock Paper Scissors, Snakes and Ladders, Twister and Simon Says. Follow the step-by-step guide to build the games and then have fun playing with your friends! *Game accessories are provided in this kit.

At the end of each chapter, there is a challenge which requires you to apply what you’ve learned to build a useful application for your classroom.
