Inventors Kit Experiment 1 - Say Hello To The BBC micro:bit:In this experiment, we will use the buttons on the BBC micro:bit and show how we can use the breakout board to access these buttons externally using the supplied switches.
Video Walk-Through With Hints & Tips:
Code Downloads:The code examples below have been individually zipped and can be downloaded by clicking on your preferred option. Once unzipped you can either open the and edit the code in appropriate editor or place the HEX file onto your microbit*.
MakeCode Editor & Python Code Downloads:
- This code was created with the MakeCode Editor, download the HEX file here.
- This code was created with the Python Editor, download the Python File here.
Legacy Editors Code Downloads:NOTE: The legacy editors will disappear at some undisclosed point in the future. The code can still be placed on a microbit and will run regardless but you won't be able to use an editor. When that happens, switch to using one of the currently supported editors. We've already made the switch as the new editors are better and more fully featured.
