Here’s a big list of all my resources and projects for the BBC micro:bit which you may find useful, educational – and indeed fun.

They’re a mixture of MakeCode and Python, some are simple, some are complex but all teach you something about how software and hardware interact. I’m especially proud of the thermal printer, full binary adder, 4×4 keypad and full PS/2 keyboard projects, but you can also attach OLED displays, 7-segment LEDs, and even get composite video out of your micro:bit with just two resistors and a breakout board!

    Hi Giles,
    I’ve been enjoying following on twitter the progress of your micro:bit Crossy Road game using an OLED display and wondered if you’d like a free zbit:builder board to mount the display on? See examples on
    Note that with zbit:builder you can still plug in other micro:bit accessories as it replicates the micro:bit connector at the bottom and all GPIO signals are still available with the unique zbit:connector.
    Anyway, if you’d like one for this project, or use it on another project, drop me an email and I’ll send you one.
    All the best,
    Mr Zbit

      Apologies for the delay in approving your comment – I get a huge number of spam comments and they tend to swamp the real ones. A very kind offer, I need to finish this on a breadboard first and then decide the next step! best wishes, Giles
