The MonkMakes Solar Experimenters Kit for the BBC micro:bit is a project kit that allows you to experiment with harvesting energy from the sun and other light sources.
Learn all about how tiny amounts of energy can be harvested from the sun and stored for later use, using a practical and experiment-led approach.
There are three projects that introduce energy harvesting without the micro:bit, followed by 3 bigger projects that use the micro:bit (not provided) as an intelligent controller. The micro:bit monitors and manages the charging and discharging of the solar store.
With this project kit you will learn all about how tiny amounts of energy can be harvested from the sun and stored for later use, using a practical and experiment-led approach.
