Introducing the Hover:bit - a hovercraft kit for the BBC micro:bit which you build, code and then drift drive.
Hover:bit is a STEAM learning kit, which will engage students with a practical and creative way of learning.
Hover:bit combines the micro:bits ease of use with the excitement and engagement of drift driving an all terrain vehicle. Hover:bit is the world's first ever developed micro:bit Hovercraft, combining the relevant skills for mastering the future of coding, engineering and technology.
With Hover:bit , you take the STEM a step further.... First, build and code your own machine, next, control it with code, an Ipad or Android app, or build your own controller using another micro:bit. Once you've learned about engines, aerodynamics, batteries and more, you can design and fabricate your own frames using a 3d printer, laser cutter or any other skill and technology you want to bring to the class - fit in classes as science, arts and crafts, coding and programming, engineering, mathematics and more!
Key Features of the MakeKit Hover:bit
- Make:code or java-programming
- Drift drive using a programmable remote (using a 2nd micro:bot) and app (IOS and Andriod)
- Advanced measurements in real-time
- Fully repairable and upgrade-able, and withstands a lot of crashes.
The Hover:bit comes with a 1 year warranty. This does not cover consumable parts such as propellers and cardboard accessories. The air:bit is fully repairable (by students) and should withstand a lot of crashes.
