    As the manufacturer of the micro:bit, we are incredibly proud to be a part of microbit.org's initiative "to inspire every child to create their best digital future." One of the ways that we are striving to do this is by helping get micro:bits and their accessories in the hands of our Community members so that they can write up RoadTests & Reviews and create projects that others can look to for inspiration. Below you can look through some of our most recent reviews as well as enroll for the chance to help us with our initiative!
