Learn coding and electronics basics with the BBC micro:bit; a simple board designed especially for teaching kids and beginners programming concepts.

Beginning micro:bit will show you how to build awesome electronics projects by learning code in MicroPython, a simplified version of the popular Python programming language, in conjunction with the micro:bit, a tiny electronics board developed specifically to help kids (10+) learn to code.

You’ll start with simple flashing animations and automatic text reminders, and go on to make a radio, quiz machine, weather station, secret code lock, and digital pet dino. The book focuses on using the mu text editor: a program designed to make coding the micro:bit as easy as possible.

The simple, straightforward instructions, color illustrations, and easy-to-follow code examples make this accessible to kids and adults with no experience at all!

Original, fun projects with step-by-step instructions.

The micro:bit is inexpensive ($14.95 MSRP) and readily available online.

The Micro:bit Foundation aims to put the device in the hands of 2 million children across the U.S. and Canada by 2020. (Note: In 2016, nearly 1 million micro:bits were distributed to every child in the UK year 7 (ages 11-12).)

Romilly Cocking wrote his first program in 1958, and has been in love with computers ever since. He’s taught IT since the 1960s, and has published over 20 open source hardware and software projects. He started RAREblog (blog.rareschool.com) in 2010, where he writes about his various electronics and robotics projects. Romilly conducts workshops for micro:bit and Raspberry Pi, and currently lives in the UK.
