The micro:bit already contains a bunch of great sensors, but if you want to unleash the full potential of your micro:bit, then Kitroniks Inventor's Kit is for you. It contains a fantastic selection of components, curated to provide the most rewarding learning experience.

No electronics experience is required as the Kitronics project book walks you through using motors, switches, potentiometers, LEDs, and more! Everything is made accessible via the edge connector which breaks out the micro:bit pins into a breadboard friendly format, ready for making.

**BBC micro:bit is NOT included**
