The Perfect Learning Kit for Children Age 10 and Above
We have bundled this micro:bit Smart Home Kit, including the micro:bit with USB micro B cable for power and program loading. Making this the perfect and complete learning kit for children!
micro:bit - The Microcontroller for Everyone
micro:bit is a tiny microcontroller board with a powerful ecosystem, and it is being built by the BBC. This BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. You can code, customize and control your micro:bit from anywhere! You can use your micro:bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more.
At half the size of a credit card, you will be surprised at the amount of hardware each board is equipped with, including 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The micro:bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading. It can also use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to interact with other devices and the Internet.
Taking a closer look at the front of the board, we can see the 5x5 LED array that you can use as a light source, a tiny screen to draw on, display words, numbers and other information, and the two programmable buttons! On the back of the board you will find the brains of the micro:bit, a 16MHz, 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller with 256KB Flash, 16KB RAM and a built-in temperature sensor. Additionally, the back of the micro:bit is populated by an accelerometer, compass and Bluetooth Smart antenna, as well as a micro-USB and two-pin JST connector for different power options. Finally, at the bottom of the board, you will find 20 gold-tabbed edge pins and five ring connectors (three for digital/analog I/O, two for power and ground) for hooking up external components. The tabs with larger holes can be easily used with alligator clips to prototype added components quickly.
micro:bit has even supplied an intuitive mobile app that lets you send your code to your micro:bit over Bluetooth (without using a USB cable) and more. With this app, you will be able to interact with your micro:bit on a higher level of accessibility.
With micro:bit board and USB micro B cable included, you can start coding and having fun with micro:bit's LEDs, buttons and on-board sensors right away. Check out the unboxing of micro:bit Junior kit:
Easy To Use, Free Graphical Programming Environment
Combine with graphical programming from online editor:makecode.org, you can get started in less than 5 minutes! You can already start with the 5x5 LED matrix on micro:bit board as a good visual output, displaying simple graphics or animation. Not to forget the two push-button A and B as digital inputs and built-in accelerometer for vibration and orientation detection. There are tons of emoticons and example codes in MakeCode Editor at your disposal. Students will enjoy learning art, music, and coding, all at the same time.
Not to forget that all exercises for the Smart Home are based on makecode.org too.
The micro:bit junior kit comes in a special box. This box can be utilized not just to keep the micro:bit and USB cable, but also as a project box. The micro:bit can be mounted from inside of the box cover, exposing the LED matrix and push buttons, while protecting the other parts of PCB.
The Smart Home Kit: Practical Kit to Learn Digital Making
Check out the video we did using this smart home kit, this is Smart Fan:
The Smart Home Kit comes with many sensors and actuators that enable kids to learn about digital making especially in making smart home projects base on micro:bit. We select components commonly used at home as the TMP36 temperature sensor, sound sensor, crash sensor, servo, motor. Children can build scenes like windowsill, wardrobe and fish tank, create their own smart sweet home and programming to intelligently drives it using micro:bit. The smart home is what makes life more practical and playing with it is what makes life more interesting.
