The Kitronik Inventor's Kit - Python version for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the BBC micro:bit. This Inventor's Kit contains everything you need to complete 10 experiments including using LEDs, motors, photoresistors and capacitors. To get you off to a flying start, we have included an easy to follow tutorial book which guides you through everything you will need to know about programming the BBC micro:bit. You don't need any experience with programming as the tutorial book will guide you every step of the way. You'll be programming and creating circuits in no time!

The tutorial offers step by step guides to all 10 experiments. Experiments 1 - 6 are coded with MakeCode Blocks and experiments 7 - 10 are coded with the MakeCode Python editor. The Python version tutorial booklet has been written especially for this version and will walk the user through creating the code and the circuits. In the original Inventor's kit experiments 7 - 10 were coded with JavaScript.
