Description

The MeArm micro:bit version is an easy-to-build robot arm kit that's designed to get children (and adults!) learning about technology, engineering and programming. It's been expressly designed to be easy to build (age 11+) and use.

At its heart is the BBC microbit (sold separately - V1 only), a low-cost computer that has been developed to make learning about computing accessible and fun. It can be controlled directly through the onboard joysticks, or you can learn to code by making it move using one of the programming languages supported by the BBC microbit.

The big benefit of being integrated with the micro:bit is the availability of coding editors to suit every coding ability level. You can use MakeCode Blocks & Javascript editors, or the MicroPython or MU editors to code the MeArm. A lot of effort has gone into making it simple to start programming your MeArm as soon as you've got it built.

The MeArm microbit version has been designed from the ground up to be easy to assemble. Children can build it themselves and we suspect adults may be able to build it unaided too. The only tool you'll need to build it is a hex key, and one is included in the box!
