An Introduction to Computer Science is an introductory curriculum for the BBC micro:bit that was developed by our partners at the Microsoft Corporation. Written by Douglas and Mary Kiang, the twelve-week program features easy-to-follow lessons to guide students through the fundamentals of coding, problem-solving and project work.
The previous chapters of the Introduction to Computer Science curriculum can be found here:

As a key manufacturing partner of the BBC micro:bit project, Farnell element14 has been working with a number of industry-leading companies to help promote and support this ambitious educational initiative around the world.
By now, over one million BBC micro:bit devices have been distributed to schools across the UK, in addition to tens of thousands that have been adopted in countries such as Singapore, Iceland and Croatia. Our partners at the Microsoft Corporation recently developed an introductory curriculum to help teachers to provide a hands-on, project based program of activities for coding and computer science.
