BBC micro:bit Classroom Pack. The Classroom Pack consists of 10 x BBC micro:bits, 10 x 1M anti tangle USB Cables, 10 x Battery Cages and 20 x AAA Batteries. This buying option offers a better value way of obtaining multiple starter packs, making it an ideal choice for equipping your classroom. An individual starter pack contains everything you need to connect your BBC micro:bit to your computer and also enables you to power your BBC micro:bit once you disconnect it from the USB.Your BBC micro:bit will come in one of 4 colour schemes, unfortunately it is not possible to specify which colour you will receive.
The BBC micro:bit is a powerful handheld, fully programmable, computer designed by the BBC and a number of partners to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software and building new things that will be controlled by it. Write your code using one of the easy to use editors provided on the BBC micro:bit website, connect your BBC micro:bit to your computer via USB press the compile button in the editor and then drop the downloaded file directly onto your BBC micro:bit. There is also an app for Android devices.
Wirelessly connect and interact with the world around you. Use Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to mobile phones and tablets, take a selfie or drive the music in your playlists.
The BBC micro:bit is the spiritual successor of the BBC Micro of the 1980s, which itself introduced a generation of children to computing. The BBC micro:bit carries on this 30 year tradition and does it 18 times faster and is 70 times smaller than its predecessor.
Based around a 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor, the BBC micro:bit also features on board accelerometer and compass sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons and it can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that are part of the 21-pin edge connector.

Our good friend, David Booth, has designed and built a microbit lap counter for a Scalextric type car track and we think it's fantastic. Learn how he did it and make your own.
As we've recently added a 360 degree continuous rotation servo to our range of stocked products, we thought it would be useful to do a quick tutorial on how to control one using a BBC microbit.
This resource consists of a selection of links to the additional resources that we have created to accompany each of the experiments. Each experiment has a walk-through video that also contains hints and tips designed to help you complete the experiment and to understand how the circuits work, we have also included links to additional code examples.
In this tutorial we are going to highlight how easy it is to code the BBC micro:bit as an instrument tuner. We will focus mainly on making a Guitar tuner but we will also provide download links for several different types of tuner.
In this tutorial we are going to look at how to control a servo using the BBC micro:bit via an Edge Connector Breakout Board for the BBC micro:bit. It’s super simple to set up and requires very few parts.
Hi Lisa, Yes we can ship to New Zealand via the website. If you add the class pack to your basket, you can then view an estimate shipping cost by using the ‘estimate shipping and VAT’ section in the cart.Posted byon Wednesday, 5 April 2017
Hi Tajvir, without knowing your exact address I can’t give an exact time scale. However using a general address in Jeju, South Korea it would take approximately 3-4 working days on UPS Saver, and 7-8 working days on Expedited. This is based on the items being in stock, as such these time scales would be from date of dispatch not date of order.Posted byon Monday, 21 November 2016
Hi Tajvir, I have tried to email you both today and back on the 19/1/17 however it doesn’t appear my emails are getting to you. I have double checked and delivery to your location would take around 5-6 days from date of dispatch. You should be able to obtain all the up to date prices and an up to date shipping price via the website and this can be used as an official quote.Posted byon Tuesday, 31 January 2017
Hi Huw, We are able to ship to Qatar, however UPS are unable to ship to a PO box address, as such if we received an order via the website with a PO box address we would hold this until we had been able to obtain an alternative address. We have shipped to Qatar on a number of occasions and we have always been supplied an alternative address.Posted byon Friday, 27 January 2017
Hi, The classpacks are currently now back in stock. We will also be looking at adding further packs in the next week or so.Posted byon Friday, 9 December 2016
We do ship to Australia. We use UPS and we charge delivery at cost.Posted byon Thursday, 13 October 2016
Hi Lee, We are currently reviewing the process of shipping to South Korea. Once this is complete it may be possible to purchase goods for delivery to South Korea.Posted byon Tuesday, 27 September 2016
The max current per pin is 5mA, but with a total maximum for the processor of 15mA.
Nominally a standard LED will take around 10mA so one LED is too much for a processor pin. There are two ways around this, either add a current limit resistor so the LED takes less than 5mA, or add a transistor to each pin so that the current pullled through the pin is tiny, but the current the transistor can drive is a whole lot more.Posted byon Monday, 26 September 2016
Hi Fiona, We are currently awaiting a part that is supplied within the classroom pack to arrive from our supplier, however this is not expect to be with us until the end of august. As such we wouldn’t expect to have stock until this point.Posted byon Thursday, 18 August 2016
Hi Chris, Yes we can sort this, you could either send a purchase order through to firstname.lastname@example.org or details of the items you would like to order and the schools address we can process this for you. With regards to an arrival date we are still currently expecting to have the items by mid-July.Posted byon Monday, 11 July 2016
