By eeNews Europe

Kitronik kits and accessories are intended to foster interaction between programming and hardware. The products can support STEM education allowing beginners to learn electronics, coding and design.

Kitronik products and accessories for the micro:bit in stock at Farnell include:

• The Inventors Kit introduces programming and hardware interaction. It has everything needed for ten micro:bit experiments using LEDs, motors, light sensors and capacitors. The kit features a tutorial book. Circuits can be completed in minutes.

• The MOVE mini buggy kit allows a two-wheeled robot to be built that can be used for autonomous operation. It can also be controlled using Bluetooth or a second micro:bit. Five RGB Zip LEDs are individually addressable and can be used as indicators. Kitronik’s custom code blocks for the Servo:Lite motors help make things easier to get going.

• The Kitronik: GAME ZIP 64 is a BBC micro:bit retro gaming accessory. It includes a built-in, 64 (8×8) individually addressable full colour Zip LED screen. It has on-board sound, four directional buttons, two fire buttons, haptic feedback, and breakout points. These features are fully programmable and breakout points allow for the use of larger LED screens.

Support for young engineers from Farnell includes free resources, including lesson plans, and project ideas from the Farnell website.
