Getting Started

The best way to get set up with the Micro:Bit is by following their own guidance! Here's a link to their set up page. Once you've got used to putting some code on the Micro:Bit you can try their first few starter lessons. That will get you ready to try out the challenges here.

We will be updating this page regularly with extra resources and ideas for you to try out.
