The BBC micro:bit is an inexpensive pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life.

You can code the micro:bit with visual block-based programming or general-purpose programming languages such as JavaScript or Python, making this an ideal tool for upper primary and lower secondary students.

The super easy, non-intimidating user experience and extensive wireless and sensor features mean it can be used across the school, including curriculum subjects such as science, design, maths, music, art and computing.

Attendees will have hands-on time learning the exciting features of the micro:bit and exploring lesson activities for students to invent, plan and create digital solutions with applications across the curriculum.
