Ada Transparent Backpack
Designed by Debra Ansell of Geek Mom Projects and Bright Wearables, this bag is perfect for adding some flare to your day-to-day look or going to events with “stadium bag” policies. It is made of sturdy PVC vinyl. You can either order just the bag or add the Bright Board and micro:bit v1 to be able to program and display dazzling LED patterns! (batteries not included, 3x AA are needed)
This backpack was named after Ada Lovelace, whose mathematical research into “computing machines” made her one of the first computer programmers! The bag is made from clear PVC vinyl and has a vegan leather panel in the front pocket to hold your Bright Board. There is one main large compartment and smaller compartment in the front both with zipper closures. Dimensions are 11.5” (H) x 8” (L) x 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.
