Inspire every child to create their best digital future


The Micro:bit Educational Foundation is a not for profit organisation. Our vision is to inspire every child to create their best digital future.

The Foundation was legally established with the support of our founding partners (including the BBC) in September 2016. 我们开始于2016年10月18日全面运作,并将此作为我们的生日(有大量蛋糕)。 Micro:bit基金会是一个基于英国的组织,它重新分配大量公积金,提供免费的设备,以使独特的micro:bit教育项目遍布全球。


基金会雇佣了一个小团队,他们位于英国和全球各地。你可以在诸如英国教育展之类的活动中遇见我们,或者给我们发电子邮件 - 我们喜欢谈论micro:bit。
