The North Olympic Library System (NOLS) is excited to offer BBC micro:bit kits to youth ages 10-14! The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world.

Youth ages 10-14 can register at nols.org to pick up a free BBC micro:bit kit at their local NOLS branch. Look for the tutorial video on NOLS’ website or social media to see ways to use these one-program microprocessors to create fun projects using the kit provided and simple household items. Access to a computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone is needed for this program. Laptops are available to checkout for 2-hour use on library property at all NOLS branches.

BBC micro:bit Kits are generously provided by Microsoft and the Washington State Library in partnership with local Friends of the Library Groups.
