Here’s a short summary of a FeatherFONA (cellular module)working with a Pro Trinket to post tipping bucket rain accumulation data from an Argent gage to the Internet of Things. I tested the accuracy of the Argent tipping bucket gage using Adafruit’s hardware and everything performed like a champ.
I am sharing this here since there’s some basic math summarized here that might make an interesting project for a science teacher out there — https://youtu.be/iR331RDdPW4 . The tested code is available here – scroll down to chapter 22. Thanks again to Adafruit for your support, and I look forward to giving this a spin one day on the Adafruit’s IO platform.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
