Welcome to ETC Educational Technology Connection (HK) Ltd!
The XinaBox STEM micro:bit Kit (XK04) is a great way to upgrade your BBC micro:bit and unlock some exciting opportunities for learning and fun. Build and code environmental sensors and use the OLED display for messages and diagnostics. The servo motor can be used in automation projects or go portable with the intelligent battery pack. And the IM01 interface is the basis of a powerful and unique data logging system.
In the box you will find two xChip sensors: one for UVA, UVB and light, and the other for temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. You will also find a mini-OLED display, a dual AA battery power pack, a servo driver, connectors, plus a micro:bit interface.
See our XK04 STEM micro:bit Kit Resources page for ideas, projects, how-to guides, hints / tips and everything else you need to get the most out of this kit.

The connection - plug and play, no wire
Build simple and complex circuits quickly and easily. The modular system allows you to connect xChips like building blocks - anyone can build a circuit in seconds, with no need for soldering irons, breadboards or consumables. And when you are done, disassemble the circuit and start again! It takes seconds when you know how.
