Be your own meteorologist or cobble together a cool, dynamic weather science project with Pimoroni’s enviro:bit for micro:bit!
This add-on board is jam-packed with all the sensors you want to graph or visualize your weather readings! With the TCS3472 sensor, detecting colors and measuring light are easy-peasy-lemon-squeeze. The BME280 lets you measure temperature, air pressure, and humidity, and the MEMS microphone detects sound!
All you have to do is slide the enviro:bit into the micro:bit slot. If you’re using MakeCode, install the enviro:bit package, and you’re good to go! Feeling a little more advanced or wanting to dip your toes in MicroPython? Take a gander at the Mu code editor!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
