Description


The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that can easily realize your creativity without much electrical and coding knowledge. There are numerous possibility of creation you can dig out by micro:bit, from robots to musical instruments. However if you want to create more things, just 1 micro:bit is barely not enough, That’s why we introduce the Grove Inventor Kit for micro:bit to you.


The Grove Inventor Kit for Micro:bit brings endless possibilities to your micro:bit. The core board in this kit is the Grove shield for micro:bit v2.0, with which you can use plenty of Grove modules including sensors, display, actuator to interact with micro:bit. If you never used and have no idea what grove is, here is the introduction of Grove. All you need to know is that with Grove, there is no need of soldering or jump wires any more. Your prototyping will be easier and much more convenient.


We have already prepare 8 grove modules to let you get started with micro:bit. With these grove modules, you can measure distance and display it, use gesture to play different music, or make a smart guard for your desk or room. We have prepared all the necessary libraries(packages) for free download. If you are a beginner to micro:bit, don’t worry because we have also prepare 12 different project which can teach you step by step. If you are an advanced user, this kit will help you more creative project than others. 


NOTE: 

The output voltage of micro:bit is around 3.0V, use microbit or AA battery to power the circuit may cause malfunction of Grove modules which requires high input voltage and drive current(e.g Grove - Ultrasonic Ranger). In order to make these kind of Grove function well, please use the micro-USB port on Grove shield for microbit to power the circuit. 


Features:

  • Cool extension shield with rich and convenient peripherals;

  • 8 well selected Grove modules for working with micro:bit;

  • 12 awesome projects to let you get started quickly;

  • Well documented instruction.

microbit该怎么驱动这些外部的模块,比如超声波传感器。需要自己新建一个库么?还是直接用blocks就能实现?

您好,我们为这里的传感器都是配套了库文件的,您不需要自己新建哈。

我们已经为套件内的模块搭好了MakeCode for microbit 的库,可以直接在add package里面输入 github.com/seeed-studio/pxt-grove就能添加

Hi, Wiliam~In theory,it support all the 3.3V digital and analog sensor which does not need a library.For example the ultrasonic sensor needs a library, we made a package so that you can use it with microbit.

I have bought the Grove Shield for Micro:bit, and I also purchased some other sensor, say Alcohol sensor and HCHO sensor. Do they need a library for implement in microbit?

This link ### http://python.microbit.org/v/1 does show a Python editor for the Microbit but does not show how to use Python to program the Microbit using the Grove Inventors Kit. I really want my students to use the kits with Python, not blockly or makecode.

Do you sell the LED Strip separately? Or do you have another LED strip that is Grove and Micro:bit compatible?
on May 09,2018

Hi there~ Unfortunately, there is no LED strip with grove connector except this kit. However, you can consider use the Grove to 4 pin female jumper cable + the normal LED strip, it will also works.
