The micro:bit is the biggest BBC Education project in 30 years - every 11-12 year old in the UK will receive one. The micro:bit presents a unique opportunity to teachers of STEM subjects; a free, versatile and easy-to-use device that will engage young people and extend learning in science and design & technology.

Involving hands-on introductory sessions and subject-specific learning resources, the course is presented by The National STEM Centre working in partnership with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Design and Technology Association (DATA).
