Converting BBC micro:bit functions for the Prime
I'm in the process of converting the function library for the BBC micro:bit for use with the Prime (and I'll share it here when ready).

On the surface of things, this may seem a tad odd, but the micro:bit really comes into its own as a low-cost alternative to HP DataStream products. The kit detailed below is £46 (here in the UK) and contains 37 different sensor types (these obviously lack the precision of high-end lab kit). Even if you do the majority of your MicroPython work is done via a desktop OS, having the ability to edit your scripts in situ where you're taking senor measurements will be a really cool addition to their broader educational value. The v2 micro:bit itself is approx £20-25 and packs a lot of punch for such a low-cost device.
