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-controlled guitar you can play just by waving your hand; 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.
