micro:bit Projects: Temperature Responsive LED @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

via Kitronik

This is a simple tutorial demonstrating how to use an analogue input with the BBC micro:bit.

The BBC micro:bit is able to read analogue voltages from sensors like Light Dependent Resistors (LDRs) and Thermistors. This tutorial uses the analogue read function to change the colour of a tri-colour LED to correspond to the temperature of the thermistor.

A thermistor is a special type of resistor that changes its resistance as it gets warmer.
