Please Note: BBC micro:bit is NOT included.

The Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the BBC 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 BBC 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 BBC micro:bit provides a fantastic way of learning how to construct and control electronic circuits. The BBC micro:bit has a selection of pins that are located on the bottom edge of its PCB (see datasheet below for details). By using Kitronik's specially designed Edge Connector Board for the BBC micro:bit in conjunction with the breadboard (see below), it is easy to use these pins to connect additional components to the BBC micro:bit.

    This is a nice little kit with a good range of components and experiments. I have only had a preliminary look through the very clear colourful instruction book, and my only minor criticism is that it seems to leap into advanced concepts fairly quickly. For instance, somewhat complicated circuit diagrams appear quite early on. This isn't necessarily a problem, but I was considering whether this would be suitable for my volunteer work at upper primary school, and I think perhaps it is more high school level. The manual is quite polished with a nice colour diagram on the back cover showing the micro:bit pinout, which is rather handy. Note: As it clearly says, this kit does NOT include a micro:bit. As far as I can tell at this stage, that's the only additional item you need to supply. (Posted on 4/10/2017)

    All the products in this order were received in excellent condition and were exactly as advertised. The service and delivery were remarkably prompt (even to the most remote capital city in the world!)
    Core Electronics is now my priority source for electronic treasures such as these. Good work Guys
