Plant Watering Kit for BBC Microbit

This super fun kit combines two of our favourite hobbies:  Forgetting to water the Plants and the BBC Micro:bit!
Make an automated Plant watering kit and learn to code the BBC Microbit at the same time!

The kit works by monitoring the moisture level in the plant pot soil. If the moisture level drops below a certain threshold, the water pump is switched on via a MOSFET transistor. The pump will run for a software configured amount of time and will then switch off.
Check out this Proto-PIC guide which has a step by step tutorial on how to get the most from your kit

    Bought for my 11 year old to learn about programming. She loved it and cannot wait to get onto the next project. Well written instructions and easy connections.
