Grades 2 and up. Compose a monophone microbit musical masterpiece with the :KLEF Piano for the BBC micro:bit Kit. BBC micro:bit is a powerful handheld, fully programmable computer designed by the BBC and a number of partners to encourage students to get actively involved in writing software and building new things that will be controlled by it. The blending of coding and music composition makes this kit perfect for any STEM/STEAM or coding program. Students write their code using the MakeCode, MicroPython, and Mu editors. Piano features 15 capacitive touch pads, with 13 arranged as a single octave and 2 up/down function buttons that allows user to shift octaves. Versatile piano can also be used as a control surface to trigger the sending of data to another micro:bit using the micro:bit's radio module, or as a remote control for your robots. The piano also features an onboard amplifier circuit, an onboard speaker, and an onboard edge connector that the micor:bit slots into.
To use the piano, the BBC micro:bit should be inserted firmly into the edge connector, either way around. If the Link Header is being used, the BBC micro:bit LED display should be facing the piano keys. Power is provided via a 5V micro USB connector. Board then produces a regulated 3.3V supply, which is fed into the 3V and GND connections to power the connected BBC micro:bit, removing the need to power the BBC micro:bit separately. This also powers the capacitive touch sensor IC and audio amplifier.
Required, sold separately: BBC micro:bit (SB53386) and micro USB cable (SB53385).
