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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
