In the future, every child will be an inventor
About the Foundation
The Micro:bit Educational Foundation is a non-profit organisation enabling children around the world to get creative with technology and gain digital skills in school, in clubs and at home.
The Foundation was legally established with the support of our founding partners in September 2016. We became fully operational on 18th October 2016 and mark this as our birthday (with plenty of cake). Micro:bit Educational Foundation is a UK based organisation and redistributes the bulk of any surplus money generated into providing free devices to exceptional micro:bit educational programmes across the globe.
The Foundation employs a small team located in different locations across the UK and the world. You can meet us at events such as BETT or drop us an email – we love talking micro:bit.
