Book is the most important tool for us to gain knowledge. This beginner-friendly book is written for students to get started with the famous micro: bit controller board. Color printed and comes with detailed explanations of electronics, coding (MakeCode), and projects in 236 pages, and it is in English.

The micro:bit is a small, powerful microcontroller, that can be extended with a vast ecosystem of electronic components. If that sounds scary, don't panic! With this light-hearted guide for teachers and tinkerers, you'll learn coding, electronics, and hands-on digital making skills, to create some vaguely amazing, mostly impractical, but always educational micro:bit projects.
