MicroBit Happy Plant

I had a go at making Geekfish’s Happy Plant project myself – this aims to tell you if your plant is thirsty using a BBC MicroBit, a resistor, some nails and a bit of Python code. I edited the code slightly, as I had a 1.5K resistor rather than a 1.2K one, so I changed line 4 to KNOWN_RES = 1500

I flashed the Python code to the MicroBit using the totes awesome Mu Python editor. I kind of guessed how the wiring should work by squinting at Geekfish’s video – I came up with this. It hasn’t blown up my MicroBit yet…
