If you need to organise and store your micro:bits away for later use, such as in a classroom environment there are a range of simple and low-cost ways to do this.


Labelling

Labelling the micro:bit is a simple way to assign them to people and count them in and out. The micro:bit fringe is an ideal place in which to do this either by using a permanent marker or a piece of removable tape.



Individual micro:bit storage

If you intend to store or transport the micro:bit, the best way to do this is by using the original anti-static pouch. This protects the device against electrostatic and handling damage.


You can also use an individual case and there a range of 3D printed designs when you search for 'micro:bit case'

Multiple micro:bit storage

To store multiple micro:bits, there exists a multitude of creative options. This stackable case was purchased from a supermarket and allows you to store micro:bits, batteries, cases, USB leads and peripherals like speakers and all-important stickers!
