micro:bit DIY Compass
Along with many other features, the BBC micro:bit has a built-in compass. The built-in magnetometer can sense the magnetic poles of the Earth. Navigational compasses usually have a piece of metal that is attracted to either the north or south pole of the Earth so that its arrow always points North. Watch as Karen shows how to make a more technical compass that can display not only arrows, but also the name of the direction being faced.
