The BBC micro:bit is a simple to use and easy to learn educational development board designed by the BBC for use within the classroom. Due to the simplicity of block programming and plug-and-play electronics, it's incredibly easy for beginners of all ages! The micro:bit helps support natural progression for learners allowing them to move away from block programming to JavaScript and MicroPython.

We understand that as teachers planning your lessons can be a long and tedious process and as a parent who would like their child to develop new and exciting coding skills, it can be difficult to know where to begin.

To help you save time and effort, we have developed a series of seven fun and engaging lessons to introduce your students or children to the world of block programming and robotics helping them learn and build on basic programming concepts and controlling a robot.

Note: This requires a BBC micro:bit and the :MOVE mini MK2 buggy kit (sold separately)

This pack contains the following lessons:

  • Lesson 1: What is Coding?
