Create a Timer with the Arduino and micro:bit

Video description

This video will teach you how to attach a button and a buzzer to an Arduino Uno and a micro:bit. We'll work through the code in C for the Arduino and block code for micro:bit to create a custom timer. Using the buttons, you can set your timer up and set it to go. The Arduino and micro:bit will set off the buzzer when the set time is reached.

What You Will Learn
  • Attach hardware such as buttons and buzzers to the Arduino and micro:bit
  • Code your hardware
  • Incorporate loops and pauses in your code
  • Set up a beep test timer
  • Use the timer for home exercises 

Who This Video Is For
Anyone interested in making a timer for exercise, cooking, or any other use. Parents wanting to code with their kids or adults looking for real-life uses for their Arduino and micro:bit can use this video for a fun at-home project.
