Borrow a micro:bit from your library!
The micro:bit is a tiny programmeable computer. It has loads of features including 25 red LED lights that can flash messages and two programmable buttons that can be used to control games. The micro:bit also has a motion sensor, a temperature gauge, compass and Bluetooth antenna. You can make music, control robots and even code your own Hogwarts Sorting Hat – the possibilities are endless!
