BBC micro:bit: Spirit Level App

BBC micro:bit: Spirit Level App

In this project, we are going to turn our BBC micro:bit into a digital spirit level, a tool designed to indicate whether a surface is horizontally flat. A spirit level is an instrument used by carpenters, stonemasons, bricklayers, and other building trades workers.

During this project, we will use the accelerometer to get the angle of the micro:bit and then we'll use that reading to display information on the micro:bit's screen to indicate whether or not the surface is flat.

Introduction to the BBC micro:bit

In this lesson, we are going to have a play with the BBC micro:bit and explore its capabilities. We'll start off looking at text, numbers, and manipulating the LED lights on the micro:bit, and using the micro:bit to do some simple maths too. We'll explore music and sounds. We will also code up a simple "dice" app.
