I made a bboard robot that drives with the controller. 1. I coded the microbit to control the wheel. 2. I created a remote with another microbit using a radio signal. 3. I then created 3d design that the servo wheel would fit in. I had to try a few times. I added some googly eyes for a finishing touch."

Students were to create an automatic bubble blower, it turned out an automatic bubble wand contraption for students to blow bubbles. Students learned how to code to make the motors run. Then created their prototype. Many changes had to be made with the propeller part, in the end, students choose to opt-out of the propeller part and use younger kids to blow the bubbles. Regardless, students had fun creating!

Automating the survival of tomatosphere plants! Students have, and continue, to code moisture sensors to indicate when plants need to be watered. The sensor measures the moisture of the soil and then our microbit lights up the microbit LEDs with an icon to let us know the condition. We're working on attaching LED light strips that will be even more visual to let us know when the soil is dry. Eventually, we will code to get the lights on timers to ensure our tomatoes get enough light/darkness so they grow and produce fruit. Eventually, we'd like to extend it to our hydroponics project and make our soil-plants have their own self-watering apparatus.
