PORT ANGELES — Children ages 10-14 can register to receive a free BBC micro:bit kit through the North Olympic Library System.
To register for a kit, visit www.nols.org.
The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces how software and hardware work together.
It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and input/output features that students can learn to program.
The kits are manufactured by the UK-based Micro:bit foundation, which was formed in co-operation with the British Broadcasting Corporation, to help teach children digital skills.
The kits are provided by Microsoft and the Washington State Library in partnership with North Olympic friends of the library groups.
