SparkFun micro:climate kit

The SparkFun micro:climate kit is a full weather station kit that is built on top of the weather:bit carrier board. Unlike previous weather kits we’ve carried, the micro:climate kit includes our tried-and-true Weather Meters and Soil Moisture Sensor, so whether you’re an agriculturalist, a professional meteorologist or a hobbyist, you will be able to build a high-grade weather station powered by the micro:bit. You can even talk via wireless communication between two micro:bits with this kit to be able to monitor the weather without being exposed to it!

Inside each micro:climate kit you will find all the components required to build your micro:bit into a go-to weather sensor; the only parts not included are two AA batteries and the micro:bit itself. Simply add your own micro:bit to the provided weather:bit, assemble the kit, and you will be ready to start sensing. The SparkFun micro:climate kit is a great way to get your feet wet in high-grade sensors — just not literally; that’s the weather:bit’s job!

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone curious about weather-sensing technology or the micro:bit platform.


The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. Between the micro:bit and our shield-like bit boards you can do almost anything while coding, customizing and controlling your micro:bit from almost anywhere! You can use your micro:bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more. At half the size of a credit card, this versatile board has vast potential!


Note: The SparkFun micro:climate kit does NOT include a micro:bit board. The micro:bit board will need to be purchased separately.

When the board was first released, there was an issue with the [pxt-weather-bit package](https://github.com/sparkfun/pxt-weather-bit) and it has since been resolved in the latest version. If you still have issues with the micro:bit reading the BME280 values, try * re-adding the `Weatherbit` package * replacing the weatherbit's code blocks in MakeCode If you are using example code from the micro:climate kit, it has been updated to reflect the latest packaged version.

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

2 DIY

Skill Level: Rookie - Basic hand tools are required and instructions will allow more freedom. You may need to make your own decisions on design. If sewing is required, it will be free-form.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Customer Comments

  • I’d like to use the data logger to log wind speed/direction data. But, as I understand it, the micro.bit only holds one program at a time. If I load the wind speed/direction program it overwrites the data logger program. Would combining the two programs into one work?
