Micro:bit is a small pocket-sized programmable computer designed to teach students how to code.
The bit needs either a computer, or a phone or tablet, with access to the internet.
You can program the bit with block coding using the Microsoft MakeCode editor or with the Python code editor. Download your program (it will be a .hex file). Using the file editor, drag the .hex file to the Microbit. Once it has loaded onto your microbit you can unplug the microbit from your computer and use it.
