Micro:bit "GO" by BBC is the same micro:bit board everyone loves, bundled up with a few of the core essentials to get started. This kit includes a JST-PH 2 x AA battery pack, 2 x AA batteries and a Micro USB cable. This means you have all the accessories you need to get started coding your micro:bit for the first time, and you will be able to power your project on the GO!

The easiest way to program micro:bit is via the Micro USB cable and onboard connector, however, it's worth noting that micro:bit have also developed a mobile app for coding over Bluetooth (yep, that's without a USB Cable).
