micro:bit at home - light-up fishing nets
Use your micro:bit to create a prototype of LED lights that can stop unwanted fish, turtles and birds from getting trapped in fishing nets.
A prototype is a working model used to test ideas, and remember to keep your micro:bit well away from water!
This program uses the light sensor and tells the micro:bit to turn on the LEDs when the light is below a certain level (to indicate a certain sea depth). It also gives out a high frequency pulsed sound to help to keep other creatures away from the nets.
What you'll make
Now open the MakeCode editor where you’ll write the code for your program:
How to transfer your program to your micro:bit
The micro:bit light-up fishing net protoype uses the light sensor as an input and the sound output. Find out more about them in the videos below:
