Designed by Debra Ansell of Geek Mom Projects and Bright Wearables, this mini backpack still has enough room to hold all your necessities and light up the room with sparkling LEDs. You can order the backpack by itself or add the Bright Board and micro:bit v1 to be able to program and display colorful LEDs. (batteries not included, 3x AA are needed)
This mini backpack was named after Annie Easley, a NASA programmer and rocket scientist! It is made from vegan leather and has gold zippers. There is one main large compartment, a smaller compartment in the front and an extra compartment in the back. Dimensions are 9.5" (H) x 8.25" (L) x 5.5" (D)
If you purchase the Bright Board with this bag it will come with a micro:bit v1 with preset demo code and will cycle through an LED display as soon as it's connected to power. If you want to change up the pattern and program the micro:bit yourself, you can! If you already have a micro:bit (v1 or v2) you can purchase just the Bright Board.
