Robotic Inventions for micro:bit

This kit is to snap the micro:bit with physical Strawbees buildings and programming mechanical structures with servo motors. A way to create physical interaction with your next project!

As an add-on kit, this requires the purchase of another Strawbees product for building with building pipes and connectors.

Write in Microsoft MakeCode’s block-based programming platform, upload a program and remove from the computer to run on batteries.

A larger, classroom version of this kit is available.
