What is the BBC micro:bit?
The BBC micro:bit provides an accessible introduction to coding which enables anyone to learn how to code in a fun and exciting way. It allows the user to develop their own programmes, games animations and music. In the autumn term the BBC, along with an extensive partnership, plans to give away around one million of the devices, primarily to children in year 7 or equivalent.

David Crellin, CEO of ScienceScope, says: “In a world where technology is transforming lives across the world our young people need to become experts in how this technology works. BBC Make it Digital, and the BBC micro:bit, will create a generation of young people who will learn how to solve problems using their own technology, using coding and electronics.”
