BitMaker Lite is a more compact version of BitMaker. It has only 3 Grove ports, but this is sufficient for many projects. The plug & play convenience means you can easily implement a project using a grove module for example a gesture sensor which according adjusts the colours of an RGB LED strip.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Dscription

The BitMaker Lite is essentially a micro:bit shield, which breaks out the micro:bit connections and makes it easy for you to interface with other devices through the broken out pins, Grove ports for additional Grove sensors, as well an onboard buzzer.
BitMaker Lite is a simplified version of the BitMaker and is primarily designed for users who are beginning to learn and use the micro:bit. You can easily slide the micro:bit into the BitMaker Lite. The included buzzer, means the BitMaker Lite enables a lot of interesting audio projects, e.g. a fruit piano (to implement the fruit piano you will also need alligator clips).
It has 3 connection ports for Grove modules, allowing beginners to explore many different micro:bit's projects with diverse functions. If you haven't heard of Grove before, Grove is a Seeed Studio series which you can read more about here.

Of course if you are a veteran electronics tinkerer, all the micro:bit pins are broken out so you could solder extra connections to electronic modules to suit your project.
We recommend that you consider the BitStarter Kit. BitStarter Kit consists of a slide potentiometer, an ultrasonic sensor and a servo to implement various kinds of creative and fun ideas or designs.
