Inventors Kit Experiment 10 Further Help. This resource has been produced to compliment the booklet provided with the Inventors Kit for the BBC micro:bit as a source of further information and hints and tips.

Inventors Kit Experiment 10 Further Help -intro-870

This further help resource contains download links for additional code examples and also a walk-through video that covers the experiment in full. The video also has hints and tips to help you complete the experiment.


Inventors Kit Experiment 10 - Using An RGB LED:

This experiment puts the RGB LED to use. An RGB LED is a special LED that contains three separate LEDs in one package. As you might have guessed the three LEDs are Red, Green and Blue. The light from these LEDs can be mixed together to allow for the creation of many colours.

We can use the PWM function of the BBC micro:bit to have a very fine control over the colours and shades

The RGB LED included in this Inventor’s pack is a common cathode LED which means all three LEDs inside the package share the same negative leg.

Inventors Kit Experiment 10 Code Examples:

Although we advocate moving over to the Microsoft MakeCode Editor, we will continue to provide links to legacy code examples for as long as the links work or until the legacy editors are no longer available. Please select your desired option below and the options for your choice will open up.

The MakeCode option is a download, the file has been zipped and will need to be unzipped before transferring to a microbit. You can also drag and drop the unzipped file directly into the MakeCode editor for viewing or editing.


Booklet Errata:

The current version of the BBC micro:bit booklet is 1.3. If you have version 1.1 then please see below for corrections made to the current version.

On page 53 the pins for the analog write are in the wrong order. They should be Red, Green and Blue, not Green, Red and Blue as written.
