However, once you insert the micro:bit motherboard, this becomes a micro:bit programmable smart car that offers your kids the chance of learning code and some robot essentials while playing.”
“Created by the BBC, the micro:bit motherboard is a pocket-sized computer that can be programmed to operate multiple functionalities, allowing children to easily learn programming while enjoying the journey as an entertainment activity. On the other hand, MakeCode editor is a Microsoft editor that provides an easy way for children to start programming and to get creative with the micro:bit motherboard. TPBot Smart Car uses both technologies combined to allow your kids to have a blast while becoming programming gurus without even thinking about it!”
