When BBC does eventually release the Micro Bit commercially, families could order one in, and given that it has been designed to get kids learning, it is very likely the computer board will be low priced to give families every reason to get their kids into programming and engineering experiments.

For now, we’d suggest to look at the Raspberry Pi which offers a low-cost entry to the wonders of programming computers, gadgets, and apps, but when there’s more news about BBC’s Micro Bit coming to Australia, you can be sure we’ll let you know.
