Project 4 out of 4
Create an environmental Weather Station that measures temperature, pressure, heat index, and more.Order Now
If you’ve ever wondered how meteorologists measure different environmental factors such as the temperature, air pressure, or heat index, you’ll find out how in this Weather Station project. Use your Creation Crate box to build your Weather Station, attaching new electronic components including a digital humidity and temperature sensor (DHT11) and a barometric pressure sensor (BMP). You’ll also attach an LCD screen so you’ll be able to read the data collected from the sensors. After you’ve assembled the project, then you’ll add some more concepts and commands to your C++ knowledge and write a program using downloaded libraries and while loops. Instead of printing the results to the Serial Monitor, you’ll have them print to the Weather Station itself so that you can take it and use it anywhere! Let’s get started.
What you'll receive in the Weather Station project kit:
Mini Transparent Breadboard
DHT11 Module with LED
BMP180 Sensor (2)
Nokia 51110 LCD Display
Adhesive Squares (2)
9V Battery Connector
White Nylon Nut (7)
White Nylon Screw (7)
M-M Jumper Wires: 10cm (6)
M-F Jumper Wires: 20cm (13)
M-F Jumper Wires: 30cm (5)
Grow your understanding of environmental science in this Weather Station project.
Advanced Electronic Components. Learn how to use BMP and DHT11 sensors to measure data.
Complex Circuitry. Follow along with detailed diagrams to complete detailed wiring.
Intermediate C++. Download new libraries and learn new commands and functions such as the while loop.
After you finish building your Weather Station, complete the following exercises to solidify your understanding of measuring environmental factors.
