Ring:bit Bricks Pack, LEGO-compatible for micro:bit (micro:bit board not included)
The aim of the Ring:bit Bricks Pack for LEGO and micro:bit is to develop your robotics skills using LEGO. There are also 6 projects you can program with MakeCode!
Use LEGO to create your first robotics project
The LEGO-compatible Ring:bit Bricks Pack for micro:bit is designed for children from the age of 7. It allows them to assemble, program and remotely control 6 mobile and/or smart robotics projects. Children will discover ways of creating everyday objects and exciting toys on their own.
The kit comes with structural parts (LEGO bricks), servo motors and LEDs. Above all, it includes the Ring:bit expansion board designed to make prototyping with the BBC micro:bit board easier.
Programming is done using the MakeCode software, a visual and intuitive programming editor that involves moving command blocks.
