This open source hardware designed by the BBC (every student in England receive one micro bit when entering middle school) is used in computer education.  Recently, Balmoral School’s Grade 7 & 8 classes received these through a training session attended by Mr. McLean.  We have over 10 of these Micro Bits. Micro Bits can be coded to perform many different functions; such as digital pedometer, simulated games, and the brains to control small machines.  Students recently coded them to great a rock, paper, scissors game.  The students can use radio waves, and Bluetooth technology to allow the Micro Bits to communicate with each other.
