Student Ross Lowe, 16, on how he created his own 'Maker's Kit' for the micro:bit, inspired by BETT
Another year, another BETT show. This was my fifth. The familiar purple carpets and crowded stands reminded me of the first time I went, with my school, five years ago.
For me, BETT 2017 was the most exciting yet as it was the first BETT after the BBC micro:bit became publicly available, and I was looking forward to meeting with teachers that were using it and seeing all the brilliant advancements made in the months between launch and BETT. And, of course, the add-ons, including my very own, the Maker's Kit for the micro-bit.
