What is BBC micro:bit?

The BBC micro:bit is a compact computer that teaches users how software and hardware work together. The micro:bit has an ARM Cortex-M0 processor, an LED light display with 25 LEDs, two programmable keys, sensors, and many input and output functions that, when programmed, enable interaction with you and your environment.

The micro:bit was created to inspire young students to become interested in computer software programming and creating new things. It was developed to work with other systems, such as the Raspberry Pi, and to continue the BBC's tradition of educational computing with the BBC Micro.

The greatest feature of micro:bit is its ability to quickly switch between block code and JavaScript. Initially, block coding can be used to introduce students to computer programming. After mastering the basics, students can move on to the more advanced programming language JavaScript.

How can you use the BBC micro:bit?

The BBC micro:bit has been used in many applications, such as digital watches, fitness trackers, and gaming consoles. The LED screen and two programmable buttons can be used to play games or browse through tracks in a playlist.

In addition, following the tremendous success of the BBC micro:bit v2, the BBC micro:bit v1 is a super-charged version of the popular pocket-sized computer, with a built-in microphone, speaker, and touch sensor.
