Felt Art - Connecting Shapes

Stopwatch

Create a working stopwatch!

Obstacle-detecting car

Build a car that is able to stop for obstacles in its path, and reverses direction if the obstacle is deemed to be permanent. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will use 3 micro:bits to make the car: one to turn each wheel and a third acting as the central controller to receive data from the ultrasound sensors. This is because a single micro:bit is unable to provide enough power to reliably turn more than one servo at a time. However, do note that there is other equipment available, such as the ring:bit, which can be used to rotate both wheels at the same time using a single bit controller.
