The Micro:bit Foundation was contacted a while back by Will, a 13-year-old student, who had created a txting package for the micro:bit in MicroPython. In his message he said: “I love using Python with my micro:bit and I created a text messaging program in MicroPython”. We were of course thrilled. The person who recieved Will’s message wrote to the rest of the team: “A 13-year-old has written a lovely little communicator using Python and two micro:bits – something to consider for the website for an article perhaps?” There was, of course, no argument, so, eventually, here is Will’s Micro:bit Txting Program.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
