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!
