The micro:bit was designed to be classroom-friendly from day one. More approachable than just coding, it's a great way to achieve fun, practical results with motivated students.
Although we had our humble beginnings in the UK, the micro:bit is benefiting Computing classes in Finland, Sri Lanka, Singapore, the USA and more.
Coding isn't just for Computing class! The micro:bit has projects that are great for Design Technology, Physics and even Art and Music classes.
We're a non-profit aiming to have a real impact beyond the typical demographics that work in STEM.
We've ensured the micro:bit's development is backed with academic research. So far we've had great results with well over 1 million devices deployed [BBC]:
