Learn to Solder and Program Temperature Logger


The goal of this kit is to teach both soldering and programming in BASIC. It can be flown in weather balloons to record the temperature of the air as a function of altitude, left out over night in the garden to discover how its temperature varies over a 24 hour period, or placed inside the freezer to discover its behavior.
This solder kit is a PICAXE-08M2 based project. The PICAXE uses its READADC command to measure the temperature of its LM335 temperature sensor. Each reading is stored in data memory for later readout. A momentary push button switch starts the data downloading and temperature logging processes. An LED indicates the operating status of the project.

Please Note: The PICAXE-08M2 microcontroller is not included in the kit and will need to be purchased separately.
