Sense the world around you with enviro:bit! It's loaded with sensors for air and weather, colour and light, and sound, and slots right onto your microbit.

Just slot in your micro:bit, then code enviro:bit with the block-based Microsoft MakeCode editor, or with MicroPython in the Mu code editor.

The sensors go hand-in-hand really well with the LED matrix on micro:bit, letting you graph sensors readings or have the LEDs react to sound, for example.

The enviro:bit comes fully assembled and ready to use so there is no soldering required!

Note:

The enviro:bit does NOT include a micro:bit board. The micro:bit will need to be purchased separately.

Features:

  • Comes fully-assembled and ready to use.
  • BME280 temperature, pressure, and humidity sensor.
  • TCS3472 light and colour sensor.
  • MEMS microphone.
  • Compatible with micro:bit.
  • Microsoft MakeCode and MicroPython support.
  • No soldering required!

Example turtorial:

Build a clap-activated light with micro:bit!

Did you ever see in the movies when someone claps their hands twice and all the lights turn off?? I thought that was the coolest thing ever! Now, with the micro:bit, an enviro:bit, and some NeoPixel lights you can recreate that same effect!
