BBC Microbit

Introducing the BBC micro:bit - BBC Make It Digital The Microbit is a pocket-sized codable computer that will be given out to all year 7 students for free in the autumn 2015. This film shows what it can do.

Our year 7's have been getting to know their Microbits this week,  and doing some simple coding on them.


They will all be bringing home their own devices which they can program either on the BBC website,  or by downloading an App on to a tablet or smartphone.


Here are a collection of links which may be useful.
