NeoPixels (addressable LEDs) are a great way to easily create colorful displays using strips of LEDs or LEDs arranged in a circle like the NeoPixel ring used in this lesson.

In this lesson you will learn how to connect your NeoPixels to your micro:bit and then how to write software to control it using JavaScript Blocks, MicroPython and Arduino code.

Although this lesson uses a NeoPixel ring, the example programs will work fine with pretty much any NeoPixel display.
