Ring:bit: the ElecFreaks kit for small cars
The BBC micro:bit board allows children to test their programming skills from primary school age upwards. With the ring:bit kit, they can use their knowledge to build and program a small, smart and autonomous car.
The ring:bit robot is a small vehicle with 2 wheels that also has a swivel castor making it easier to change direction. It’s quick and simple to assemble with the help of its illustrated teaching aid. Once assembled, with the micro:bit board, the ring:bit board and the extension board, this miniature car can spin around, accelerate, draw shapes on the ground and blink.
Programming the ring:bit kit with MakeCode
The ring:bit kit is an ideal gateway for discovering programming. Begin with MakeCode to benefit from its highly intuitive drag-and-drop visual interface (MakeCode can be used by children from the age of 9 upwards). Then expand your knowledge with Python, to explore your robot’s advanced features and create your own applications.
