The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that can easily realize your creativity without much electrical and coding knowledge. There are numerous possibility of creation you can dig out by micro:bit, from robots to musical instruments. However if you want to create more things, just 1 micro:bit is barely not enough, That’s why we introduce the Grove Inventor Kit for micro:bit to you.
The Grove Inventor Kit for Micro:bit brings endless possibilities to your micro:bit. The core board in this kit is the Grove shield for micro:bit, with which you can use plenty of Grove modules including sensors, display, actuator to interact with micro:bit. If you never used and have no idea what grove is, here is the introduction of Grove. All you need to know is that with Grove, there is no need of soldering or jump wires any more. Your prototyping will be easier and much more convenient.
We have already prepare 10 grove modules to let you get started with micro:bit. With these grove modules, you can measure distance and display it, use gesture to play different music, or make a smart guard for your desk or room. If you are a beginner to micro:bit, don’t worry because we have prepare 12 different project which will teach you step by step. If you are an advanced user, this kit will help you more creative project than others.

Microbit and the Grove Shield
Overall experience was very good. This kit allows a pretty through experimentation with using the MicroBit. It is easy to connect all the parts and try coding to use a range of commonly useful sensors. The documentation from MicroBit and Microsoft is excellent. A good way to learn about microcontrollers and coding.
Pakronics have been amazing with providing exceptional advice and service.
Grove kit review
Lightning quick shipping and the kit itself is very easy to use/has some great features, highly recommend for those wanting to augment the functionality of their microbit
Best service and products
Thank you so much for helping choose and get this great gift for a family member’s birthday, even gift wrapped it for me. Thanks so much. Karin
Grove Inventor Kit
I have found this kit a useful extension to the micro:bit's native features. It is accessible to many students because of the plug in nature of the accessories rather than using a bread board with wire cable connections and the sample code in the instruction manual.
