micro:bit Sorting Hat! @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

From Lorrain Brow

When the micro:bit was first released to schools it came in a choice of 4 colours. On Twitter we talked about making a sorting hat to decide which student would get which colour.

I’ve finally made it! But I’ve just linked it to the 4 houses of Harry Potter 🙂
