Do you have an urge to write some microbit games but don't know how to start, maybe we can help. Learning how to code some basic gaming functions could be all you need to overcome coders block. Today we are going to take it back to basics and learn a couple of key concepts. Processing user input and also taking control of the LED matrix, both required knowledge if you want to create engaging games.

The last in our Kitronik :city builds from Bett 2019 is the microbit and Robotics board controlled London Eye and Wind Turbine. Take a look behind the scenes at how we put it together. If you want to have a go at this yourself, all of the files you need are included within.
At the centre of our Kitronik :CITY layout we had at BETT 2019 was our microbit controlled model of Tower Bridge. The model featured our 16 servo driver board. We demonstrate how we made it and also how you can make one for yourself.
For part 3 of our microbit Kitronik:City build for Bett 2019 we take a look at Big Ben. Our Big Ben model is the largest on the Kitronik :CITY layout we had at BETT. In this behind the scenes, we’ll look at how we made it and how to use the new Klimate environment sensor board for BBC microbit in your own projects.
For part 2 of our microbit Kitronik:City build we breakdown the football stadium. Our new move mini football stadium got a lot of attention at BETT 2019, so we’ve put together a guide on how we made ours and how to make your own!
We had a great time at BETT 2019, and loved the feedback on our microbit Kitronik :CITY display! This week we’ll be showing a behind the scenes of how we made it and how you can make each building on the layout for yourself.
Learn how to get up and running with Scratch for microbit. Scratch is probably the most well known and widely used platforms for learning to code. Since version 3, it's appeal has widened further as it now has native support for the micro:bit!
Distance sensing with the BBC microbit and a HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor is a fun and easy, this tutorial describes how to connect the sensor and write code.
The Christmas Fair Bandstand and Stalls is the third and final model from our Christmas fair. This time showing how to make an animated display featuring figures. Just by using a servo, a microbit, and a tiny snippet of code.
This is the second model from our Christmas fair, this time showing off our ZIP LEDs and how the Halo can be used to drive a whole RGB LED chain.
This is the first model from our Christmas Fair, designed by Matt Moeser to show off the features of our new All-in-One Robotics Board. This solder-free model makes a great centrepiece to a Christmas diorama and shows off the robotics board's unique stepper motor coding blocks.
The :KLEF Piano for the BBC microbit features all you need to both unlock your inner Bach and to provide you with some fun coding challenges. The first step in fully realising your micro:symphony is an inspiring instrument to play it on!
If you've bought any of our more recent BBC micro:bit products and were also wondering how to make the switch from Blocks to Python, we've got you covered. We have example code for five of our recent products that you can use and also learn from.
As a fun demonstration piece for shows, we created an interactive fa controlled ZIP LED experiment on the Inventors Kit that uses a motor as an input device. When someone blows on the fan, the microbit reads the EMF created by the motor and rotates the LEDs of a ZIP ring relative to its speed.
Experiment 2 Using a Light Sensor and Analog Inputs from the Kitronik Inventors Kit for the BBC microbit. We've included the entire experiment as a free example of the great practical experiments that are contained within the Inventors Kit. Learn how to build the circuit and how to code the microbit to control the circuit.
See how we made a microbit Guitar using the all-new Noise Pack Add-on for the Kitronik Inventors Kit. We've also included all of the files we've used as free downloads. So, you can either create one yourself or take inspiration for your own noisy touchpad instrument.
