Micro:Bits - Borrow Them From The Library and get Coding!

Local libraries are to bring in an exciting new addition from 5 June. Central Bedfordshire Libraries are to get a stash of micro:bits to borrow.

Micro:bits in Libraries is part of an ambitious project to inspire a new generation of digital pioneers – supporting young people to flex their digital muscles and develop the coding skills they’ll need for so many careers in the future.

The micro:bit is a tiny programmable computer, designed to make learning and teaching easy and fun. It’s a fantastic way to introduce kids to coding and programming, with lights, buttons and sensors to program. It can be coded from any web browser in coding languages Blocks, Javascript, Python, Scratch and more; no software required.

You can find out more about the micro:bit on the official micro:bit website, which is where you will find projects and get ideas on what you can do with a micro:bit.

The micro:bits in the libraries can be borrowed for three weeks, just like a book, free of charge. Look out for them in your library from 5 June, and get coding!

If you’ve borrowed a micro:bit and created something great,  tweet about it on Twitter, using the hashtag #MicrobitsInLibraries.
