Upon the first impression the boson starter kit + micro:bit was amazing! There are lots of potential in this kit and it provided excitement with the possibilities to do so much without the need to solder. The ability for instant results makes this kit well worth the money. Lights, fans, motors, are just a few things that can be made quickly and engage the learner. This offers a great springboard for learning about microcontrollers and circuits. Coding was a bit challenging as the mirco:bits platform had been updated and there was no way to update the task cards. With a little reading and problem solving coding issues were resolved. This offers higher order thinking for beginners and is best used for students ages 9 - 99.
