    This beginner-friendly micro:bit kit is specially designed to encourage kids to explore STEAM and learn coding.


    You can easily program EDU:BIT using open-sourced Microsoft MakeCode Editor. Just add EDU:BIT MakeCode Extension and you’re good to go. If you’re a beginner, you can start with the block programming mode; simply drag, drop and snap the coding blocks together. For more advanced users, you can easily switch into JavaScript or Python mode on MakeCode Editor for text-based programming.


    New to coding? Don’t worry. This kit comes with a booklet covering 10+1 hands-on coding lessons, which have been creatively structured to introduce programming basics in a fun and engaging manner. Each chapter features a classic childhood game such as Rock Paper Scissors, Snakes and Ladders, Twister, and Simon Says. Follow the step-by-step guide to build the games and then have fun playing with your friends! *Game accessories are provided in this kit.


    At the end of each chapter, there is a challenge which requires you to apply what you’ve learned to build a useful application for your classroom. Give it a try and if you’re stuck, we’re always here to help you. You can go to our online Resource Hub for sample codes and extra resources.

    We're passionate about eliminating the language barrier and let every kid have access to this guide book in their mother tongue. Thanks to volunteer teachers from Malaysia, EDU:BIT guide book in Malay language is now available for download here (pdf format). Tamil and Hungarian versions are currently in progress. If you'd also like to volunteer to translate this book into another language, we welcome you to get in touch with us. Email to cheryl@cytron.io.

     

    SPECIAL FEATURES:

    Start having fun with EDU:BIT right out of the box. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays melody with the press of a button. No wiring required when used as a training kit. 


    Cannot control servo motor and play music at the same time on your micro:bit[1]? Servo motor refuses to move correctly[2]? Worry no more! EDU:BIT takes care of these issues with its dedicated controller and power supply. It can even support up to 3 servo motors and 2 DC motors to actuate any creative projects you will build.


    Each feature and its associated micro:bit IO pin is clearly labeled on the board for easy reference. In addition, indicator LEDs are built in on EDU:BIT to ease troubleshooting for both digital and analog IO pins. 


    Ready to build your own projects? You can break off the modules on EDU:BIT board for more flexibility in your project design. Plug-and-play cables are provided for you to connect the broken off Bits to the main board. 


    Last but not least, we even provide a special space on EDU:BIT for you to write your name. Get yours today!


    We've had our product launching on 8.8.2020 (Saturday) at 8.30pm. Watch the replay on our Facebook page -- Launching of EDU:BIT & Certification Program for STEAM Education.

    Hi, are there any python libraries and documentation available for this kit? Or where can I find the schematics for the circuit board(especially I2C and motor pins)? ( Lin Minhui , 22/08/2020 )

    We provide MakeCode Extension for EDU:BIT and now MakeCode supports switching to Python mode after the latest update in June 2020.

    If you are looking for Python library to be used with other code editors like https://codewith.mu/ or https://python.microbit.org/, please take a look at https://github.com/Bhavithiran97/micropython-edubit. The instructions to install this library/module is available at readme.

    For the schematic, we've just updated the product page to include the link to GitLab repository (https://gitlab.com/cytrontech/rh2t/edubit).

    Thank you.

    hi, is the connector compatible with grove? ( sidik, 20/06/2020 )
    Hi, yes it is compatible. Thanks :)
