This Kitronik University resource is part of the BBC micro:bit partnership and explains exactly what is included in the Kitronik BBC micro:bit partner free e-textiles sample pack. We're proud to be sponsoring a free e-textiles sample pack for every secondary school in the U.K. The pack contains enough components to do two tutorials (provided one of them connects conductive thread directly to the BBC micro:bit, or reuses crocodile clips). You'll also receive a BBC micro:bit along with your sample pack (not provided by Kitronik). If you are missing the booklet you can download it here or view it below. Please note, a Welsh translation of this booklet will be available to download from this page once complete.
