micro:bit Smart House Kit

Product Introduction

This smart house kit allows students to build a smart home based on learning engineering knowledge, operational thinking, and simple programming, combined with artistic creative elements, to create a unique smart home.

 

In the 21st century, smart homes are becoming more popular and important. This set can raise students' awareness, improve human life, and save energy. Students use 7 types of sensors and 7 types of drivers by building paper house models, and learn how to assemble and build models to make their own ideal smart home.

Smart House Scenario

Scenario example 2: Open style model (House safety & Energy saving)

It is a open style design which easier to let student design different smart function in rooms like kitchen, room, living room etc. In the kitchen, there are flame alert detecting function and motor fan. In the meantime, there is auto-LED in the room and temperature-adjusting system in the living room.

Scenario example 1: House model (Automation)

 

This model is using the house shape as a house. The main function is focusing on automation including microbit controlling motor fan, curtain etc. In the meantime, when the housekeeper come back to the house, the light will be turned on automictically.

The above are examples only, you can using the paper model in the kit set or design your own smart house model. You can combine different cases from the kit set and build your dream house!

Learning the knowledge of a smart home as the main focus

All accessories are for smart home learning. Mainly about the knowledge of a smart home, programming as the second priority. Cultivate students to improve their lives. Integrate STEM elements into regular courses. The package is designed with the curriculum as the main axis, mainly to learn the curriculum rather than other technical knowledge.​​

Simple programming

Use mainstream hardware Micro:bit motherboard, compatible with Micro: bit Makecode platform to facilitate teaching. The set is easy to use. The motherboard is a sensor computer, which directly reads the data. It is convenient to observe the data changes. A total of 13 kinds of sensors/drivers are enough to complete a variety of creative projects. The extension set includes 4 additional components.​​
