Little Bird Micro:Bit Advent Kit 2018


Tired of chocolate and your kids bouncing off the walls?

Why not learn how to use the micro:bit in bite-sized chunks this year using the all-new 2018 Little Bird Micro:bit Advent Calendar Kit. It's the perfect way to get started with coding and electronics. 

What is the BBC micro:bit? 

The BBC Micro Bit is a small, code-able device that is an easy/non-intimidating introduction to programming and making – just switch it on and program it to do something fun. You can then wear it or even customise it!

What do I get as part of the kit?

The Little Bird  Micro:bit Advent Kit includes 24 tutorials that teach you both how to use the micro:bit with various sensors and electronics with real-world applications, every day leading up to the big day. Access to the tutorials will be provided daily starting December 1st 2018.

Each kit and tutorial has been handcrafted by the Little Bird Team.

What will I know after completing the advent kit?

After completing the 24 days you (or your kids) will know how to connect sensors and actuators to the BBC micro:bit and get a taste for visual programming, Arduino and Python.
