The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in.

It measures 4cm by 5cm, is available in a range of colours, and designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with something simple in seconds – like lighting up its LEDs or displaying a pattern – with no prior knowledge of computing.

It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.

Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

Product Overview

Get creative, get connected & get coding with the micro:bit go. A complete set containing all the parts and inspirational ideas to get started with the micro:bit. Each micro:bit go contains 1x micro:bit, USB cable, battery holder & 2x AAA batteries along with a Quick Start Guide featuring 4 fun ideas all in a retail ready pack. The micro:bit go is the quickest and easiest way for children to get going with the micro:bit. The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go - all you need is imagination and creativity. The micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The micro:bi
  • Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
  • A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up and can display animiated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
  • Two programmable buttons. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smart phone
  • On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt or free-fall
  • A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you're facing and your movement in degrees and detect the presence of certain metals and magnets
  • Bluetooth® Smart Technology. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and other everday objects
  • 20 pin edge connector: This allows the micro:bit to be connected to other devices such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Galileo and Kano through a standard connector
  • Micro-USB controller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick
  • Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR), ground (GRD) and 3 x I/O.
  • System LED x 1 (yellow)
  • System push button switch x 1

Dexter - GiggleBot Base Kit for Micro:bit (1D5 Gigglebot for micro:bit)

GiggleBot is the Micro:bit Robot

Turn your BBC Micro:Bit into a Gigglebot robot and start coding in under 5 minutes!  The GiggleBot is the fastest and easiest way for kids aged 6 through 14 to integrate powerful STEM learning and coding in the classroom.

The GiggleBot is a Microbit Robot.  micro:bit is a tiny programmable computer, designed to make learning and teaching easy and fun through block coding, JavaScript and even Python!

The GiggleBot is the easiest way to integrate powerful STEM learning and coding into your classroom.  GiggleBot is designed and sold by Dexter Industries, the world leader in STEM robotics.

This is the GiggleBot. Just add your BBC Micro:Bit to the Robot and you can begin programming using MakeCode. 

Please Note. Micro:Bit NOT Included

What's included?

  • GiggleBot Robot Only (Assembled)

What's not included?

The GiggleBot is a perfect robot for the BBC Micro:Bit Robot:

  • Works with a PC, Mac, and Chromebook.
  • The micro:bit is mounted vertically for ease of insertion/removal (also easy access to the reset button)
  • 9 color LEDs,  7 are in a rainbow shape, and 2 are used for the robot "eyes".
  • A line sensor to follow lines on the floor. 
  • A pen-hole right between the wheels that supports drawing with the robot.
  • Two light sensors are in front on each side so the robot can play "follow the light." 
  • Servo mounts on the side so you can attach two servos. You can control wings, flippers or a head and tail after your robot becomes an animal.
  • Runs on 3xAA batteries.
  • Comes pre-assembled. You add the wheels and the micro:bit!
  • micro:bit not included.

The GiggleBot comes ready for the classroom:

  • Works with a PC, Mac, and Chromebook.
  • A solid robot body that's able to survive in a classroom.
  • The robot is shaped organically so you can turn it into a butterfly, cricket, or whatever you like.
  • There's room on the body for kids to build on, so they can use the robot in whatever school project they have. To help with the build, there are holes on the body you can fit LEGO components to!
  • We've got two Grove expansion ports for I2C sensors, and we keep the 0/1/2 pins open. 
  • Supports more sensors: distance sensor, a light/color sensor, and a temperature/humidity sensor.
