Rainbow Tree for BBC Micro:Bit

$5.99

We’ve just introduced the Rainbow Tree board for the BBC Micro:Bit. With the Rainbow Tree board (and a micro:bit of-course) you can light up your own Christmas tree is many different colors. The Rainbow tree offers an easy electronics challenge for those wanting to play around with the BBC micro:bit and dabble with some simple circuits to get the feel of electronics and interact with the real world. The Rainbow Tree is a simple circuit in the shape of a Christmas tree with 6 multi color LED’s on it. Wire up the Rainbow Tree, connect it up to your BBC micro:bit, put together the code and light it up in an array of colors.

Please note : This product does not come along with a BBC micro:bit or the Snowflake Buzzer.

The BBC micro:bit has grown in popularity over the years. The micro:bit might be small electronics board but it’s packed with features (e.g. LED’s, accelerometer, temperature sensor, light sensor, compass, etc.) offering kids of all ages the opportunity to get started with their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning journey. Kids can use the BBC micro:bit board to get started with coding, later on start dabbling with electronics and eventually try their hand at robotics all using the same little electronics board.

How do we program the BBC micro:bit and the Rainbow Tree board : The micro:bit can be programmed using either the Block Editor, using Javascript editor or using the Python editor. Let’s look at each of the programming platforms very briefly –

  1. The Block Editor is a visual editor and provides an introduction to structured programming via drag and drop coding blocks that snap together. You can also convert a Block Editor script into a Touch Develop script which helps with the transition to text-based programming. Read more at the micro:bit website.
  2. With its touch-based interface, Touch Develop has been designed for mobile devices with touchscreens. It can also be used with a pc, keyboard and mouse. Touch Develop introduces a statically-typed scripting language with syntax-directed editor. It can be used to produce web-based apps that can run online on any platform. Read more at the micro:bit website.
  3. MicroPython is a completely text-based editor, perfect for those who want to push their coding skills further. A selection of ‘snippets’ are on hand to help auto-complete trickier tasks and a range of pre-made images and music are built-in to give you a helping hand with your code.  Read more at the micro:bit website.
