Bling Blink Bracelet
The flexible LED strip can transform into a colourful light bracelet when worn on the wrist. Bring it to your next dance party (or work meeting), and gesticulate wildly for some awesome flashing lights!
We’re going to build a simple version of timing gates which are sensors used on some roads to determine how fast cars are travelling.
Steal Me Not
Let’s use touch sensing to create an alarm for a container! You can use this to secure your favourite snacks from your household pet. Or small child.
Using a micro:bit, an analog light sensor, and an LED, we create an automatic night light that turns on in the dark!
Use the micro:bit to measure distances with no additional electronics! Just the onboard accelerometer, craft materials, and of course, variables.
Build a cardboard T-Rex that will move its mouth and roar whenever you disturb its peace.
In this project, we will build a Ferris wheel with the micro:bit. This is a popular amusement ride consisting of a rotating upright wheel with multiple components attached to the rim. Here, we use a micro servo motor to rotate the wheel. Enjoy making this fun project! *This project is originally published in micro:bit Magazine Issue 07, a quarterly publication by CLASSROOM*
Smart Farming System
Whether you’re growing greens for sustenance or you just love gardening, this mini greenhouse is a satisfying project. We will look at how to make a simple green house with automated temperature control. *This project is originally published in micro:bit Magazine Issue 07, a quarterly publication by CLASSROOM*
Foot-Operated Door Opener
Having second thoughts about opening the door after you wash your hands? This foot-operated door opener will let you open the door without using your hands. So you can avoid germs and prevent cross contamination. Stay safe! *This project is originally published in micro:bit Magazine Issue 08, a quarterly publication by CLASSROOM*
We are making a Pirate Boat using micro:bit, basic:bit, Neopixel light strip, micro servo motors and some additional tools like tape, straws and joints. The boat will rock back and forth while the LED strip will light up it in a colourful sequence. It is inspired by the Viking Ship rides commonly found in theme parks. We love to try those! *This project is originally published in micro:bit Magazine Issue 08, a quarterly publication by CLASSROOM*
