Samsung Teams Up with BBC to Inspire 1 Million Children to Code
July 9, 2015
The BBC unveiled on Tuesday its revolutionary new micro:bit, a small, programmable hardware device that will help young students learn to code, and in the process transform a new generation of passive consumers of technology to creators and innovators in the digital world. A million of these free pocket-sized, code-able computers will be distributed for free.
Samsung Electronics is a key partner in the development of the micro:bit, which is aimed to be a springboard for young children to further learning products. The product is the result of a three-year research and development collaboration between the BBC, Samsung and more than 20 other partners. Samsung’s major role was developing the functionality of the micro:bit to be able to connect to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
