    Micro:bit Educational Foundation Python Editor V3

    This is a new version of the micro:bit Python Editor designed to engage students learning text-based coding.

    The goal is not to hide all the complexities of syntax and structure, but to support students in learning about these things.

    There's a simulator so you can try your code without the micro:bit.
