We asked three engineers to design a program for their micro:bit that would help them to carry out a task within their working environment or everyday life. The result is a case study booklet and video for each, highlighting the problem they were faced with; the micro:bit’s solution; a link to the real code on the micro:bit website; and a quiz to ensure your students have understood the code.

Download the booklets and bring the micro:bit to life in your classroom!
