The Microbit Traffic Lights Kit attaches to your Microbit. Here are the instructions for building them.

1 - What you need

You will need the following:

  2. A Microbit
  3. A Phillps head screwdriver

2 - Open up the package

Open the Microbit Traffic Lights package and take out the contents.

3 - Make the stand

There is a bottom part of the stand that you can snap off. Carefully snap this off and then slot it into the matching part so that it makes a stand.

4 - Screw on the Microbit

Put the Microbit on top of the traffic lights and line up the holes as follows:

  • P0 Red > 0
  • P1 YLW > 1
  • P2 GRN > 2
  • 3V > 3V
  • 0V > GND

Once you have lined them up as above, use your Phillips head screwdriver to attach the screws and bolts in the holes.

That's it, you're done!
