Tech Talk - Simple Servo Control Board - Thurs 10th February @ 10:30AM GMT

The team are back with another tech talk! This time we take a look at our new simple servo control board for BBC micro:bit. The board offers a clean and simple interface for controlling up to three servos with a BBC micro:bit. If you have any physical animation/animatronics projects in mind, this is the board for you.

Join Emma & Alasdair on YouTube, Thurs 10th February @ 10:30AM GMT, and have your questions answered live! We'll be running through the nuts and bolts of the board, and we'll also show you some of the cool things we've made with it too.
