Magnetic switches are popular peripherals you can even find at your local hardware store. Whether you're making a DIY security system, trying to count how many times a door is opened during a day, or building the notorious fridge alarm, this project will show you the way!
Just in time for the Holidays, turn your micro:bit and an old kitchen thermometer probe into an accurate and versatile digital thermometer. Python powered kitchen science is the best! As an added bonus, you'll be cooking with Logarithms, so get your math on and have some fun as we code this up in CodeSpace!
Coding at the speed of sound! You can't beat the HC-SR04 sensor for a low-cost way to do experiment with some really cool physical science. How does the speed of sound change as the temperature changes? Write a little Python code then do an experiment to find out!
A potentiometer is a great way to improve control in your micro:bit projects. Whether you're using it as a game controller, to select options from an on-screen menu, or controlling musical tempo and pitch, there are so many potential uses!
Witness the power and simplicity of Python with potentiometers in our demovideo!
See how easy it is to control servos with Python and the micro:bit! Firia Labs Engineer Todd Beales takes you through the fundamentals of servos, and shows you how to spin 'em up with CodeSpace and a little bit of Python.
