We’re back from Easter and for the next 3 weeks we’ll be having weekly sessions on Arduinos. The official Arduino introduction c [...]

Embedded Programming – Mirco:bit OLED Game

Another little project I wanted to do now that we had the OLED screen working correctly was to try and see if I could replicate this simple [...]

Embedded Programming – Mirco:bit LCD

Another challenge was to connect an OLED displauy and get it to display a reading such as temp. As I had a 16 pin LCD screen I decided to tr [...]

Electronics Design – Micro:bit Radio Chat

Another good exercise uses the inbuilt radio to let two Micro:bits communicate with each other. Me and classmate Max ( [...]

Electronics Design – The Tasks

With knowledge of Micro:bits and how they’re programmed (detailed in previous post) we were tasked with experimenting with reproducing [...]

Electronics Design

Along with designing electronics using software and diagrams as detailed in my previous post we were also tasked with exploring programming [...]

Electronics Production – The Tasks

Initial task We were tasked with creating a simple circuit on a breadboard that used an input, output and a capacitor. We also had to plan t [...]

Electronics Production – The Basics

The differences between electrical and electronic devices: Electrical devices are powered by electricity (e.g. lights, kettle, fridge, toas [...]
