Welcome to ETC Educational Technology Connection (HK) Ltd!
Get creative with the Pen Lifter add-on for the :MOVE Motor for BBC micro:bit. This add-on allows you to take full advantage of the pen hole in the Kitronik :MOVE Motor.
Once fitted, the add-on allows you to control when the pen is in use with code. The assembly holds the pen firmly in place and the supplied servo can be used to raise and lower the pen. This will allow the user to create complex patterns without any unsightly travel marks.
The kit comprises a set of 3 laser-cut parts, a single 180-degree servo, a rubber band, and the fixings required to put it together. The kit requires no soldering but there is some simple mechanical assembly. The kit is supplied with a booklet that walks the user through every aspect of the assembly.
We have also created an online MakeCode tutorial, to help you get up and running straight away. Work through the guide, one step at a time, building your code in the editor as you go.
