Build your own secret laboratory with 30 coding and electronic projects!

The BBC micro:bit is a tiny, cheap, yet surprisingly powerful computer that you can use to build cool things and experiment with code. The 30 simple projects and experiments in this book will show you how to use the micro:bit to build a secret science lab complete with robots, door alarms, lie detectors, and more—as you learn basic coding and electronics skills.

Here are just some of the projects you’ll build:
  •  A “light guitar” you can play just by moving your fingers
  •  A working lie detector
  •  A self-watering plant care system
  •  A two-wheeled robot
  •  A talking robotic head with moving eyes
  •  A door alarm made with magnets

Learn to code like a Mad Scientist!

Original, fun projects with step-by-step instructions.

The micro:bit is inexpensive ($14.95 MSRP) and readily available online.

The Micro:bit Foundation aims to put the device in the hands of 2 million children across the U.S. and Canada by 2020. (Note: In 2016, nearly 1 million micro:bits were distributed to every child in the UK year 7 (ages 11-12).)

Simon Monk is a full-time author and maker, mostly writing about electronics for makers. Some of his better-known books include Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches, Raspberry Pi Cookbook, and Hacking ­Electronics. He is also the co-author of Practical Electronics for Inventors and wrote Minecraft Mastery with his son, Matthew Monk.

“Simon Monk has been teaching folks how to learn to code and make for many years, so he knows exactly the kinds of projects that any beginner can make, and all the trouble spots to avoid. In this lovely illustrated book you will learn different ways of using the all-in-one micro:bit with sensors, lights, even little robots…It’s a STEAM adventure for students of all backgrounds!”
