Let's Get Hacking
DIY projects with complete tutorials which you can do on your own at home or at school with various electronics and a little bit of creativity!
Accumulated all your coins in one place and want to separate them accordingly? Then make yourself this coin sorter with a Micro:bit!
To learn how to use the Infrared(IR) receiver and IR transmitter. To learn use the OLED.
Create a simple space shooter game where you have to shoot and avoid falling projectiles.
Create an Intruder Detection system with the Micro:bit which will sound when someone opens the door. The status of the house will be displayed on the OLED.
The Higher Lower Game
Build a simple math game where you can guess if the next number is higher or lower than the one shown on the micro:bit now.
Ultrasonic sensor game
Build a reclusive robot that makes a sound anytime it is toggled, touched or when it detects motion
Create a fish feeding machine! Two red buttons on ADKeyboard will control the movement of the servo, and a message will always be displaying on the OLED, showing the status of the servo.
Waving fortune cat
Make a Maneki-neko, or Fortune Cat, using the Micro:bit! The ADKeypad moves its hands.
Create your very own simple but addictive game with just a micro:bit! Dodge the dropping missiles to survive and achieve new high scores! The pace of the game gets increasingly faster as you advance the ranks.
Animate your favourite character with littleBits!
Break down images into basic shapes and create an animated version with recycled materials!
Tree of life
Explore the basics of electricity and electrical circuits using conductive and insulating dough.
Don’t Steal My Pig! (Burglar Alarm)
Build a burglar alarm that is activated with a crash sensor and PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor, producing warning music from a buzzer and animation on the LED display of the micro:bit. Create a model of a pig pen enclosure.
Temperature and Light Sensor
To display the intensity of light and temperature and determining if it is a good day to sleep in.
Create a cardboard chameleon with rotating eyes and blow out tongue with littleBits
Advanced Reaction Time Tester
Want to test your reaction time more reliably? Want to test other modes of reaction? Build this to be able to test both your auditory as well as your visual reaction time more accurately. This project uses TypeScript ONLY.
Build your own piano by following this tutorial and learn more about the sensors along the way!
Avoid the Asteroids
Make your own little arcade game on the micro:bit, and admire it in all its 5x5 pixelated glory!
soil moisture sensor
Use a soil moisture sensor, that will produce a warning sound when soil moisture gets to low, as well as a flashing LED, to inform the user to water the plant, also to use an OLED screen to display the value of soil moisture at appropriate intervals
Want to be a smart cookie and have your micro:bit acknowledge it? This tutorial will teach you how.

Create a 2D pinball board on Scratch with semi-realistic physics and a micro:bit controller
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.
