micro:bit 2.0 GO Bundle Overview:
The micro:bit 2.0 GO Bundle includes the micro:bit 2.0 module, battery pack, two AAA batteries, and USB cable, in a box.
The BBC micro:bit v2.0 will will be completely familiar to anyone who has used the original device. It’s the same size, shape and looks very similar — and functions the same way. Programs written for the prior version run on version 2.0 with the same editors. However, the micro:bit v2.0 features several significant additions related to program memory (3.5x the code space for cyber:bot Python scripts), a touch-pad button, speaker and microphone. These hardware additions expand the kinds of applications students may build.
Some additional refinements include a notched edge connector, power LED, and an exposed, gold-plated antenna to identify the radio/Bluetooth component.
