Please Note: BBC micro:bit, 2 x AAA Battery Cage and 2 x AAA Batteries are NOT included. If you also require a BBC micro:bit, you can order one here.
This Prototyping System for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to start making circuits and making experiments without the need to solder.
This prototyping system uses our specially designed Edge Connector Breakout Board for BBC micro:bit that gives full access to the pins on the bottom of the BBC micro:bit. The BBC micro:bit pins are broken out to a row of pin headers, the SCL and SDA pins are separated at the edge of the board providing easy identification. The PCB includes a prototyping area with 3V, 0V and unconnected rows that can be soldered to. This allows easy connection of switches, sensors and any pull-up or pull-down resistors etc. as required.
Please Note: BBC micro:bit is NOT included.

This Kitronik University Resource is a part of the BBC micro:bit partnership and explains the various options available for powering your BBC micro:bit.
After you've created your first program you'll need to compile it and transfer it to the BBC micro:bit. This process is very simple, and if you follow our guide you'll be up and running in no time.
The Touch Develop Editor centres around a code keyboard, making it perfect for writing code on a touch screen device or by using your mouse.
The Microsoft Block Editor is a drag and drop editor that provides a simple introduction to programming. Blocks snap together to build programs and are grouped by the type of function they do. When a group is selected, the commands in the whole group are highlighted and can be selected. It's a great introduction to programming for those with little or no experience.
Hi Brendon, Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to use the MI:power with the prototyping system as the MI:power screws directly to the pins on the edge of the micro:bit and as such would prevent it from being inserted into the edge connector.Posted byon Tuesday, 14 February 2017
