I created a fun 5-day project to monitor data about your neighborhood or school using BBC micro:bits and Azure IoT Central.
The micro:bits can be used to gather data such as temperature, but they can't talk to the internet. This project uses a mesh network of micro:bits to send data to a central 'Hub' made of a micro:bit and a Raspberry Pi. This 'Hub' routes the data to IoT Central to show on charts:
This project is all hands on, and uses Python to program the Pi, and MakeCode to program the micro:bits, so can be fun project to do with kids who are interested in programming.
You can find the entire hands-on project on GitHub:
