Micro Bit Review

Reviewed by: Copey - 05 September 2016
Fabulous piece of kit when utilised with the BBC Microbit site which offers easy programming examples and tutorial. This kit allows easy input output connection and offers simple initial programming utilising hardware output. Far easier as an input into programming and switching different devices . This microbit comes with built in LED allowing simple text and figures to be displayed in running order. As the BBC microbit site has a microbit simulator which displays all program action on screen to allow proving of programs before compiling and downloading onto the actual microbit it is almost foolproof.
