School children from Yorkshire have sent a Micro Bit into the stratosphere by attaching it to a large helium balloon.

They used the computer to track and display the surrounding temperature.

The device is now being given to Year Sevens and equivalents across the UK as part of an education project spearheaded by the BBC.
