    Kitronik Inventor's Kit for Microbit

    Manufacturer: Kitronik
    The Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the BBC micro:bit. This Inventor's Kit contains everything you need to complete 10 experiments including using LEDs, motors, LDRs and capacitors.

    To get you off to a flying start, we have included an easy to follow tutorial book which guides you through everything you will need to know about programming the BBC micro:bit. You don't need any experience with programming as the tutorial book will guide you every step of the way. You'll be programming and creating circuits in no time!

    The Kitronik Inventor's Kit for the BBC micro:bit provides a fantastic way of learning how to construct and control electronic circuits. The BBC micro:bit has a selection of pins that are located on the bottom edge of its PCB. By using our specially designed Edge Connector Board for the BBC micro:bit in conjunction with the breadboard, it is easy to use these pins to connect additional components to the BBC micro:bit.

    Note: BBC micro:bit is NOT included. This kit requires assembly.

    Micro:bit V2 loose single

    MIC 548
    Micro:bit V2 is a tiny, programmable computer board designed to teach kids and beginners about coding, electronics, and robotics. The board features a range of sensors, buttons, and LED lights that can be programmed using various programming languages and visual programming tools.

    Now includes both a speaker and microphone as well as many of the same great features students have used for years. It's easier than ever to use sound and touch to get creative in the classroom.

    Using the micro:bit V2, students will be able to sense and react to sound with the built-in microphone and play sound with the built-in speaker while coding in MakeCode, Python, or Scratch!

    Kitronik PIR Motion Sensor

    KI 4633
    This is a simple to use motion sensor. Power it up and wait 1-2 seconds for the sensor to get a snapshot of the still room. If anything moves after that period, the ‘alarm’ pin will go low.

    This unit works great from 5 to 12V (datasheet shows 12V).

    The alarm pin is an open collector meaning you will need a pull up resistor on the alarm pin. The open drain setup allows multiple motion sensors to be connected on a single input pin. If any of the motion sensors go off, the input pin will be pulled low.

    Gone is the old “odd” connector, now you will find a common 3-pin JST! This makes the PIR Sensor much more accessible for whatever your project may need. Red = Power, White = Ground, and Black = Alarm.

    Kitronik Protector Case for Microbit - V1 &V2

    KI 56102
    This Kitronik MI:pro Protector Case for the BBC micro:bit has been designed to work with both the original Micro:bit V1and the new Micro:bit V2and continues in the traditions of our earlier cases. The cases are designed to keep the micro:bit safe, fully useable, and to offer the freedom of not being tethered to a computer.

    If a battery holder is attached to the back it can also can be stood neatly on a desk and it also features large and easy to read labels for the A and B buttons. This case provides full access to the bottom pins on the BBC micro:bit so the Edge Connector Breakout Board for the BBC Micro:bit can be used. One of the key features of the micro:bit is its physical size and this case has been designed with that in mind. It's as compact as we could make it, whilst still offering protection for the micro:bit.

    The case is also supplied with a sticky fixer pad so that you can attach a battery holder to the rear of the case, such as can be found in our BBC micro:bit Starter Kit. When a battery holder is used, micro:bit projects can go wherever you go. Even with a battery holder attached, the case is still palm-sized and portable.

    Note: This case requires assembly, full instructions can be found in the resources section below.

    Features:
  • Provides excellent protection to the BBC micro:bit whilst allowing access to the bottom pins.
  • Full access to the A and B buttons on the BBC micro:bit.
  • Attach a battery cage to the rear of the case with the supplied sticky fixer.
  • Full access to pins and connections including the micro USB connector.
  • Clear case material shows the on-board LEDs in perfect clarity.
  • The case is compatible with versions 1 and 2 of the micro:bit.
  • When used in conjunction with a battery holder, micro:bit projects can be fully mobile.

  • Contents:
  • 4 x M3 Cheese Head Nylon Machine Screw.
  • 1 x Sticky Fixer Pad.
  • 4 x M3 Nylon Full Nut.
  • Laser-cut parts;
    -- 1 x Back Mounting Plate.
