Kitronic Inventor's Kit for the micro:bit
Get more from the micro:bit with Kitronik's incredible inventor's kit! The simple way to learn about creating circuits and code.
Please note: micro:bit is NOT included.
The Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the micro:bit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the micro:bit. This Inventor's Kit contains everything you need to complete 10 experiments including using LEDs, motors, LDRs, and capacitors.
To get you off to a flying start, Kitronik have included an easy to follow tutorial book which guides you through everything you will need to know about programming the micro:bit. You don't need any experience with programming as the tutorial book will guide you every step of the way. You'll be programming and creating circuits in no time!
The Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the micro:bit provides a fantastic way of learning how to construct and control electronic circuits. The micro:bit has a selection of pins that are located on the bottom edge of its PCB (see datasheet below for details). By using the specially designed edge connector board for the micro:bit in conjunction with the breadboard (see below), it is easy to use these pins to connect additional components to the micro:bit.
No soldering is required and you can build your first circuit in minutes!
