What is Micro:Bit? Over the last few months the BBC micro:bit – a mini computer designed to teach youngsters how to code – has been delivered to over 800,000 school kids across the UK. Before the end of the year, this amazing device will make its way into the hands of 1 million teenagers. MyMiniFactory is the official 3D printing partner for the BBC micro:bit and just launched a 3D design competition for the device. How to compete? You just have to upload your own design which works with the micro:bit to the MyMiniFactory website.

The winning design will take away a BQ Witbox2 3D printer for the school of their choice. Don’t have a micro:bit yet? Dont worry, you can download the micro:bit CAD file from Kitronic’s profile page. You can also check out this useful list of functions the micro:bit can perform. The competition is sponsored by BQ, a brand with a heritage in education, 3D printing, telecoms and robotics.
