BBC micro:bit




Our 10 BBC micro:bit Projects in 10 Days series introduced the incredible creative potential of this unique pocket sized computer system. But we've really only scratched the surface. Now we want to hear your ideas.


The BBC micro:bit is currently only available for sale in the UK through Farnell element14, CPC and our approved re-sellers, but we've managed to secure ten devices to give away to members of our global community.

How to Enter


For your chance to get hold of one of these sought-after devices, simply read our 10 BBC micro:bit Projects in 10 Days series and 'like' your two favourite projects to earn the BBC micro:bit badge. Then, leave a comment under this blog telling us about a project you'd like to try out using the BBC micro:bit.


The ten participants who submit the best, most creative project ideas will each receive a BBC micro:bit and will be invited to write about their project here on element14.


Submissions are open until 23:59 (BST) on Sunday 31st July 2016. Full terms and conditions can be in the attached PDF.
