About

The project

 

You have students around 10 years old, and you want to teach them about programming.

What do you think is the best way to do this?

BBC took this seriously and they decided to develop, together with more than 20 partners, BBC Micro:bit.
An amazing device, with a 5x5 matrix leds, a lot of inputs and sensors.
Then the Python Software Foundation jumped in and said that it was a super cool project, why don't we put Python inside it?

The result?

You can use BBC Micro:bit and Python to teach young students about programming. You can do this while having fun, and with a programming language that is used almost everywhere.

What about Microbit:Polska?

Well in UK they gave 1 million Micro:bits to school children for free, why we should not have something similar in Poland?

Come join in the fun!
