About this Campaign

My students have taken off with coding on micro:bits! They are ready for the next challenge, and having the the materials available is absolutely necessary for their success. 

This grant request is for the following items:

15 SparkFun Inventor's Kit Bridge Packs @ $39.95 each (minus 5% volume discount)
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14719


The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) for micro:bit is a great way to get creative, connected and coding with the micro:bit. The SIK for micro:bit provides everything you need to hook up and experiment with multiple electronic circuits! With the SIK for micro:bit you will be able to complete circuits that will teach you how to read sensors, move motors, build Bluetooth® devices and more.

15 :MOVE Mini Buggy Kits @ $34.95 each
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14679

The :MOVE Mini Buggy Kit from Kitronik provides a fun introduction to robotics using the micro:bit. Specifically, the :MOVE Mini is a two wheeled robot that is suitable for autonomous operation, remote control projects via a Bluetooth application, or being controlled using a second micro:bit as a controller thanks to the micro:bit's radio functionality. The :MOVE Mini also has five RGB individually addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible), which can be used as indicators, reverse lights, and more!

The included Kitronik :MOVE servo:lite board can also be used in conjunction with a micro:bit to build other movement based projects. There are even guides detailing; how to control a third servo, how to code the buggy to draw shapes, how to write code for the on-board ZIP LEDs, how to code the buggy for Bluetooth control, and how to use a second micro:bit as a controller.
