Top Micro:Bit Projects To Try

 Micro:bitis a small computer that can teach both adults and childrenhow to code and create projects through the use of software and hardware. Designed by the BBC, it’s based on an open-source network and just needs to be connected to a computer to allow the user to programme their own devices. 

Micro:Bit Projects

A micro:bit can be used to create a wide variety of projects including those related to fitness, gaming, music and lifestyle. It’s also useful for helping students in STEM education, paving the way for the next generation of technology employees and ensuring countries are able to adapt to the increasing digital advancement. 

We’ll explore in more detail some of the top projects to try your hand at, whatever level of coder you are. If you’re new to programming, micro:bit project kits are an ideal introduction to the technology and provide a good first platform to build your skills. 


A great one for beginners, instead of using a fitness app or watch, why not build your own step-counter using your micro:bit? Easy instructions make this coding project super achievable. 

Create a name tag

Another excellent choice for beginners, you’ll be able to code your name to appear as flashing LED lights that scroll across the screen. 

Sunlight sensor

Incorporate light into your project with this must-try creation and see your micro:bit light up when the sun shines. Once you’ve conquered the basics, you add to it by creating a nightlight or an alarm.

Magic 8 ball 

Update this classic by turning your micro:bit into a modern version of the well-known toy. It responds to movement by displaying ticks, crosses or a ‘not sure’ face and can be adapted to show different answers once you’ve mastered the initial coding. 


This is suited to those who are at the intermediate stage of learning to code. Your micro:bit will play tunes when you press a button, just like a traditional jukebox, when you connect with headphones or speakers. 

Door alarm

This creation could come in handy if you need to be alerted to anyone entering the room. Using the built-in compass and a door magnet, the micor:bit will know if the two have separated further from each other and alert you on the display. You can also add an audio alarm and a timer to this project. 


One for the more advanced user, there are a few elements to the micro:bit guitar projects. You can learn how to play songs using an additional input device as well as add buttons with tin foil and program your own chords. 

If that sounds a bit too complex, then Scratch Guitar is a simpler version, which uses foil and input pins. 

However you choose to get started with your micro:bit, there are almost endless opportunities to improve your coding skills and build upon your projects step by step.
