About Micro:bits:

A micro:bit enables you to do an amazing variety of functions while introducing you to the connection between hardware and software. These pocket-sized computers allow you to control, manipulate and code on different platforms to take control of this futuristic device.

This kit comes with 1 micro:bit for you to code and explore, allowing you to get started immediately! You may be able to code another micro:bit to serve as a controller. If you already have an extra micro:bit, you’ll just need to reprogram it, or you can purchase one elsewhere. Note: we do not sell individual micro:bits.
