BBC micro:bit: Thermometer
In this project, we are going to turn our BBC micro:bit into a digital thermometer, which will sense the temperature of the room by getting the temperature of the micro:bit's components. We're also going to use this project as a chance to explore and create functions....
BBC micro:bit – Rock, Paper, Scissors (One Player Game)
In the second part of this two-part project, we're going to create a version of our Rock, Paper, Scissors game which you can play, single-player, against your micro:bit! If you haven't completed part one, you should give that a go first! Part 2: The One-Player Game...
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.
How to get your app from the browser onto your BBC micro:bit
So, you’ve created something amazing and now you want to see your project running on your micro:bit! Here’s a step-by-step guide to show you how!
BBC micro:bit – Making Music
In these lessons, we're going to look at how we can get the BBC micro:bit to play some sounds and music. We're going to even recreate some movie theme songs on our micro:bit!
BBC micro:bit – Rock, Paper, Scissors (Two Player Game)
Rock, Paper, Scissors makes for a great first project for the BBC micro:bit as it makes the most of the micro:bit's inputs, and also uses logic such as random numbers.
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.
