A classroom set of 10 robotics boards to make it even easier to attach and program servo motors with the micro:bit! You can also control two RGB-pixel lights to create a full light spectrum for a show. This board comes with a removable Strawbees building clip to snap connectors and straws for making robots or mechanical structures like a crane.
Write in Microsoft MakeCode’s block-based programming platform, upload a program and remove from the computer to run on batteries.
This is an add-on kit and requires the purchase of another Strawbees product for building robots with building pipes and connectors.
An individual, smaller version of this Strawbees kit is available here.
