    EDU:BIT  was 575% funded on KICKSTARTER on Oct 22, 2020 .

    This beginner-friendly micro:bit kit is specially designed to encourage kids to explore STEAM and learn coding.


    Do check out the review of micro:bit V2 vs V1.5 by young maker, Jayden Lam:


    You can easily program EDU:BIT using open-sourced Microsoft MakeCode Editor. Just add EDU:BIT MakeCode Extension and you’re good to go. If you’re a beginner, you can start with the block programming mode; simply drag, drop and snap the coding blocks together. For more advanced users, you can easily switch into JavaScript or Python mode on MakeCode Editor for text-based programming.

    New to coding? Don’t worry. This kit comes with a booklet covering 10+1 hands-on coding lessons, which have been creatively structured to introduce programming basics in a fun and engaging manner. Each chapter features a classic childhood game such as Rock Paper Scissors, Snakes and Ladders, Twister, and Simon Says. Follow the step-by-step guide to build the games and then have fun playing with your friends! *Game accessories are provided in this kit.

    At the end of each chapter, there is a challenge which requires you to apply what you’ve learned to build a useful application for your classroom. Give it a try and if you’re stuck, we’re always here to help you. You can go to our online Resource Hub for sample codes and extra resources.

    We're passionate about eliminating the language barrier and let every kid have access to this guide book in their mother tongue. Thanks to volunteers all around the globe, EDU:BIT guide book in the following languages are now available for download (in PDF format): 

    If you'd also like to volunteer to translate this book into another language, we welcome you to get in touch with us. Email to cheryl@cytron.io.



    Start having fun with EDU:BIT right out of the box. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays melody with the press of a button. No wiring required when used as a training kit. 

    Cannot control servo motor and play music at the same time on your micro:bit[1]? Servo motor refuses to move correctly[2]? Worry no more! EDU:BIT takes care of these issues with its dedicated controller and power supply. It can even support up to 3 servo motors and 2 DC motors to actuate any creative projects you will build.

    Each feature and its associated micro:bit IO pin is clearly labeled on the board for easy reference. In addition, indicator LEDs are built in on EDU:BIT to ease troubleshooting for both digital and analog IO pins. 

    Ready to build your own projects? You can break off the modules on EDU:BIT board for more flexibility in your project design. Plug-and-play cables are provided for you to connect the broken off Bits to the main board. 

    Last but not least, we even provide a special space on EDU:BIT for you to write your name. Get yours today!

    Q & A (9)
    Hello! Three questions please:1. Is it ok to connect the included cable to a USB 2 computer, or is USB 3 required? I'm wondering if USB 2 outputs enough current.2. Is it ok to connect the included cable to a USB C Samsung Tablet (using an extra USB C - OTG cable) in order to do development on that tablet?3. Is it ok if I connect the included cable to a phone charger (5V/2A) and use only it's jack connector to power the edu:bit board and use a separate USB cable to connect the micro:bit board to a PC? I'm wondering if this separate cables scenario could cause problems (over-voltage/over-current).Thank you! ( Alex Balmus, 07/07/2022 )
    Hi 1. Yes you can connect it to USB 2 Computer as the output current is enough.2. The included cable is a USB type B so you may need adapter for type B to type C. For tablet there is Micro:bit app that u can use Micro:Bit3. Yes it is possible sir. You can power up the edu bit separately. Thank you for asking !
    Are servos powered and controlled by 5 volts? What type of servos can be used with the board? ( Kevin Walters, 22/10/2021 )
    DC jack power input supplies the servo ports and DC motor terminals. Therefore, the voltage at servo ports follow the input voltage at DC jack (3.6 to 6V). Any hobbyist servos should work with EDU:BIT's servo ports.
    Can it be combine together back to one piece after breaking it into bit? ( Yip Tuck Wai, 30/06/2021 )
    Hi. You will not be able to combine them into one piece, but you can connect the modules back to the main board using the Grove cable provided in the package and use them the same way.
    As of now, current batch of this RM199 EDU:BIT kit does include latest version micro:bit V2 ? ( Tan , 13/04/2021 )
    Hi. As of now, this edubit kit comes with Micro:bit V2. Thanks :)
    Is the Micro Bit included in the kit ( Matthew, 28/02/2021 )
    Hi. Yes, we did include BBC micro:bit board in the packing list. Thanks:)
    When will you start including the new model of microbit in the kits? ( Maureen, 18/11/2020 )
    The official announcement about the availability of micro:bit V2 is in November 2020. However, we are not sure about the stock allocation for each region. We'll surely run more compatibility tests and make it available to our supporters once we received the stock. Please stay tuned for our update!
    Where can i find the default program/code that comes preinstalled on the EDU:BIT please? ( jasonn, 17/11/2020 )
    EDU:BIT Out-of-the-box Demo Code is available on the product page, under Resources section. Otherwise, you may visit the link below:https://link.cytron.io/edubit-demo-code
    Hi, are there any python libraries and documentation available for this kit? Or where can I find the schematics for the circuit board(especially I2C and motor pins)? ( Lin Minhui , 22/08/2020 )
    We provide MakeCode Extension for EDU:BIT and now MakeCode supports switching to Python mode after the latest update in June 2020.If you are looking for Python library to be used with other code editors like https://codewith.mu/ or https://python.microbit.org/, please take a look at https://github.com/Bhavithiran97/micropython-edubit. The instructions to install this library/module is available at readme.For the schematic, we've just updated the product page to include the link to GitLab repository (https://gitlab.com/cytrontech/rh2t/edubit).Thank you.
    hi, is the connector compatible with grove? ( sidik, 20/06/2020 )
    Hi, yes it is compatible. Thanks :)
