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**

    This is great. I was a complete novice when it came to micro:bit, and this kit contained some simple experiments that really helped bring me up to speed. (Posted on 20/10/2017)

    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
