Getting started with the micro:bit Tinker Kit

Tinkercademy is proud to present our very own micro:bit Tinker Kit! The kit comes with:

  • Our custom Breakout Board, which makes it super easy to make projects with the micro:bit!
  • A variety of Octopus parts: components with colour-coded plugs that connect easily with the Breakout Board.

Follow the graphical guide to get started on using the Breakout Board, and try out the tutorials below.

You’ll need a computer with an Internet connection and browser to program your micro:bit using Microsoft MakeCode. Some components may require extra libraries, which are available for download in the tutorials.

Have a new micro:bit? Here’s where you can get started:

  • The official micro:bit site at microbit.org
  • Want to jump straight into coding? See microbit.org/code, or go straight to Microsoft MakeCode.
  • microbit.org has lots of great MakeCode lessons to get started—check here!
