Programming and creating circuits with the BBC microbit featured image
The BBC microbit project is all about inspiring a new generation to get creative with digital and code. At Kitronik we are focusing on using the BBC microbit within D&T especially making use of the edge connector.


We decided that a prototyping system and an Inventor's Kit, which both include an edge connector breakout board, a custom mounting plate and a small prototype breadboard would make getting started as easy as possible.

Inventor's Kit for the BBC microbit

The Inventor's Kit comes with over 50 parts; all you need to complete 10 easy to follow experiments. We feel this is a great way to  get started with programming and hardware interaction with the BBC microbit. Whether you are a beginner or have been coding for years; the Inventor's Kit is ideal if you want to get stuck straight in. inventors_kit_for_the_bbc_microbit_800
  • Experiment One: Say 'Hello' to the BBC microbit.
  • Experiment Two: Using an LDR & analog inputs.
  • Experiment Three: Dimming an LED using a potentiometer.
  • Experiment Four: Using a transistor to drive a motor.
  • Experiment Five: Using the accelerometer to control motor speed.
  • Experiment Six: Setting the tone with a piezo buzzer.
  • Experiment Seven: Wind power.
  • Experiment Eight: Making a game using the compass.
  • Experiment Nine: Capacitor charge circuit.
  • Experiment Ten: Using an RGB LED.
