BBC Micro:bit Stand – Brackley Library

Harvey Sharman has arranged for a stand of Micro:bit related books and other literature to be housed at Brackley Library.

There is now an opportunity to borrow and take home a BBC micro:bit kit with a battery pack, lead and instructions too. There is a small stand with micro:bits, literature and magazines for reading in the library including Scratch 3 coding with micro:bits including school educational computing magazines. This is aimed for ages 6 to 18 to further their creative computing science and curriculum learning which also can be used for ICT homework or coursework topics. Please speak to Mr Sharman for further help and info.
