The new “Starter Set for micro:bit” by fischertechnik teaches the basic principles of programming with micro:bit single board computers for students grades three and up in an easy to understand way. This complete set includes a fischertechnik part set for building three stationary models and the new fischertechnik “micro:bit IO F5 adapter”. The adapter board has 8 outputs and 6 inputs. It can be used to control simple, easy to understand demonstration models (a pedestrian walk sign, hand dryer, barrier) equipped with actuators and sensors using the “micro:bit board”. The additional pedagogical manual offers help in starting up the models, a variety of exciting tasks, and is available free of charge as a download from the eLearning portal.
Additional instructional materials:
