Great ways to get involved

The micro:bit is the result of companies and communities all around the world working together to help people learn to code, and become confident and creative with technology. We're immensely grateful to everyone who's helped so far, and we're always looking for more people to help out.

There are plenty of ways to join the community, from small things like spreading the word or donating a micro:bit to a local school, to big things that might change education for everyone.

Support micro:bit

We're always open to organisations and communities that share our mission and are interested to provide to help micro:bit. Individuals and organisations all over the world are doing projects with micro:bit at the grass-roots level. Do get in contact with us at if you think you've got a way to support and work with us or the micro:bit.

The best help of all is hands-on. We encourage people to donate micro:bits to educators in their area and help them integrate micro:bit with their curriculum. Working to help teachers become confident with the micro:bit makes a huge difference to how effective it can be.

Write a blog or a book

Many fabulous people across the world have written books to help people learn more about micro:bit. So many that it is hard to keep up and list them all here on this website. If you are writing a book make sure you follow our community guidelines carefully. Do ensure you are using screen grabs from the latest coding editors. The Foundation will on occasion talk about books designed for children and educators on social media. Please get in contact via if you want to let us know about your book project.

Contribute to micro:bit open source projects

A lot of the magic that makes micro:bit work is the result of communities around the world developing and maintaining code.

For example, people posted micro:bits all around the world so that Python would run really well on the micro:bit.

We're always looking for more people to help us, so visit our Developer Community site to learn about how it all works and projects that you could help with.

We keep our main website here focused on what students and teachers need to know, but the developer community site contains loads more technical details for anyone wanting to look behind the scenes and get involved at a technical level.
