The ultimate project kit for the BBC micro:bit. Includes all essential accessories and a great electronics kit so you can get started with micro:bit projects.
To get you off to a flying start we 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!
- BBC micro:bit v2.2
- microB USB cable
- 2 x AAA battery and battery holder for mobile power
- Kitronik Inventor's Kit for micro:bit
The micro:bit V2.2 board is backwards compatible with other micro:bit boards, ecosystems and accessories. Codes written for the earlier version (v1 and v2) are able to run on this board without any changes.
Note: This kit requires assembly.
- No soldering required - build your first circuit in minutes!
- Make 10 experiments included in the provided step-by-step tutorial book.
- All parts are included to conduct the 10 experiments (listed below).
- Breaks out 21 accessible pins from the BBC micro:bit using the Edge Connector Board for the BBC micro:bit (included).
- Small Prototype Breadboard included for fast prototyping.
All of the experiments included in this booklet (listed below) are based on the Microsoft BlockEditor and Microsoft TouchDevelop editor software.
Experiments included in the tutorial book and online:
- Experiment 1: Say 'Hello' to the BBC micro:bit.
- Experiment 2: Using an LDR & analog inputs.

The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in. It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.
