Wiring (with Robotbit Edu)


 Connect the module to the P1 of the Robotbit Edu with the 3-pin cable.

(Only P0, P1, and P2 can be used because they have the function of analog read)

When we turn on Robotbit, we can see that the red light on the bottom of the module will be on, which indicates that the module is working normally.

 

Programming (with Scratch-based editor Kittenblock)


Use the happy face and sad face pattern on the LED matrix of Micro:bit to show the moisture of the soil to remind us to water the plant 

Run the program online or offline to test it out.
