Description

The BBC micro:bit comes with 25 red LEDs on the front but...maybe you have a fever, and the only prescription is MORE LEDs!? If so, then you can add 119 individual blinkies to your micro:bit with Pimoroni's scroll:bit!

No extra components or headers needed, simply insert the micro:bit into the 2x40 right angle edge connector, and you're good to go! Then, MakeCode to your maker heart's content. Program graphs, animations, etc, with the code generation blocks. Or, if you're more leveled up and up for a challenge, you can experiment with MicroPython in the Mu code editor!
