Kitronik & Hands-On Science At The SETT Show
On Monday and Tuesday of this week Kevin and Tim travelled to the beautiful city of Oslo in Norway to attend the SETT show. We were there to support our good friends Hands-On Science from Sweden as they exhibited the BBC micro:bit on their large and varied stand.

We were pleasantly surprised by the awareness and level of knowledge of the microbit amongst the attendees, it seems that in a short space of time it has already become very popular outside of the UK.

The SETT Show In Oslo:

The SETT show is very similar to our BETT show and is very education focused. The show is held over two days and attracts a wide range of visitors, many of whom are educators and the content includes; seminars, workshops, stand exhibits and lectures.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Norway and we would like to thank Hands-On Science for inviting us, our only regret was that we weren't there longer, as we barely got to scratch the surface of what Oslo has to offer.
